Nonprofit boards are critical to the success of NYC organizations. This hands-on workshop offers essential information to help boards fulfill their roles. Presenters offer straightforward descriptions, examples and thought-provoking visuals to de-mystify tricky governance terms and concepts. Participants then work in groups on a case study that expands their ability to identify and avoid common governance traps.
Workshop material is based on The Good Governance Blueprint, a free resource developed by the NYC Nonprofit Board Development Coalition, a group of nonprofit governance experts convened by NYC Service, a division of the Mayor's Office. In addition to providing information about the Blueprint, presenters will also share information about other valuable, free resources to support nonprofit board development and director education.
- An understanding of the roles and responsibilities of individual board members
- An understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the board on whole
- Tips on identifying, preventing and -- if needed -- addressing common board problems
This workshop will be presented by Laura Klein, Executive Director of charitySTRONG, and Luana K. Lewis, Senior Vice President of Better Business Bureau Serving Metropolitan New York.
