Exclusive KNN Member Benefit
KNN offers free, monthly Governance Peer Huddles for member organizations’ staff and board members to engage in deeper conversation and move toward action and implementation on strengthening board governance practices. Using KNN’s Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Kentucky tools as the basis for discussion, the Governance Huddle meets on the fourth Thursday of each month from 2-3pm ET. See below for dates.
The Governance Huddle offers KNN members a virtual opportunity to discuss recommended nonprofit governance practices with their peers and discussions are facilitated by governance expert and BoardSource consultant, Vanessa Womack. Topics include looking at governance recommended practices through an equity lens, achieving board diversity in meaningful ways, successfully engaging board members, addressing troublesome board relationships, the board and staff partnership, and much more.
Participation in the Governance Peer Huddle is free and available exclusively for KNN members – join in the conversation!
