SVP Workshop: Board Governance
October 12, 12:00 pm-2:00 pm
Is Board Governance at Your Nonprofit Organization the Best tt Can Be?
Join SVP MN Board Chair, Linda Ireland, in an interactive conversation about 10 key characteristics of an effective nonprofit board of directors. In today’s world, most nonprofit organizations have to contend with a multitude of competing priorities. From program development, staff management, emerging community needs, fundraising…the list goes on. Board governance is also critical to the success of a nonprofit organization, but it is not always top of mind for everyone.
This workshop will highlight the importance of board governance and focus on key ways to ensure the board is working as effectively as possible. There will be time in this workshop to complete an organizational self-assessment to help identify its current strengths, as well as areas and ideas for how to improve its board’s effectiveness. This workshop is ideal for SVP Partners, Investees, community partners, anyone who is currently serving on a nonprofit board or considering joining a board. This is also a valuable experience for nonprofit staff to attend with their board leaders.
