A high performing board is the source of a thriving mission.  Energize and strengthen your board with this  training intensive:

Essentials of Good Governance: Training Intensive – Part I/morning
We'll spend the morning with an overview of the roles and responsibilities of a high performing boardincluding legal responsibility, philanthropy, planning, financial oversight, strategic relationships and partnering with the executive director as an advocate and ambassador for the organization. We will also cover the traits of a successful board leader, and the role of officers of the board.

Essentials of Good Governance: Training Intensive – Part II/afternoon
In the afternoon we will cover recruiting and retaining board members, operating with clear job descriptions, how to run an effective board meeting, including the appropriate use of a consent agenda, ways to effectively reach a decision, the role of committees in maximizing “face-time” at a board meeting, and the key differences between staff and board responsibilities before, during and after a meeting.

This training intensive offers important lessons for you whether you are a well-seasoned or first-time board member and is also useful for leadership staff that work directly with the board.
