Essentials of Board Orientation

Ever wonder why some board members never get on board? Why many new board members don’t seem to be on the same page? Why some seem surprised when you mention your expectations for all board members? A thorough New Board Member Orientation program can help solve these problems and more. This fast paced workshop is filled with practical applications and will share  what should be included, who should lead it, how long it should be, governance basics, expectations of Time, Talent and Treasure, overview of board and staff roles and much more. Throughout the workshop, you’ll be given opportunities to fine tune the examples given to fit your organization’s specific needs.
