Taking Your Board to the Next Level

A high functioning board works in partnership with the Executive Director providing guidance and direction, oversight and management.  Members come to board meeting prepared to have substantive discussions and make decisions.  They are active in between meetings.

Does this sound like your board?  When was the last time your board reviewed its performance?  Perhaps it's time for a board assessment to review the skills and competencies that are needed to help your organization fulfill its mission.  This training will show you how it's possible to rebuild your board to be more effective and engaged.

Learning Objectives
- Identify the knowledge and competencies to increase board effectiveness
- Understand how to successfully manage the membership of your board

Intermediate: For Executive Directors and Board Chairs who desire to more effective engage their board in governance.  Note: it will be assumed that all participants have an understanding of the basic roles and responsibilities of board members.  For anyone wishing to review, please see Board Roles & Responsibilities, online.
