Effective Boards: Understanding Board Purposes and Planning
Wednesday, November 15, 2023 (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EST)
In this workshop we go beyond the fiduciary duties to explore a common lifecycle that every board of directors travels through and the different purposes that boards fulfill at each stage. Participants will reflect on their board’s current stage and how it matches their organization’s needs. A stage-based perspective helps boards and organizations normalize their board experience and consider what it will take, at this particular point in time, to be effective.
We will dig into how board effectiveness at any stage is bolstered by proactive board planning. We will review strategies and templates for board annual planning and meeting planning. This workshop is valuable for individuals holding leadership positions on or with the board, such as board chairs, officers, committee chairs, executive directors, and leadership staff.
Offered by our partner, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits.
