Are you a new trustee looking for clarity about your role and responsibilities?
Are you an experienced trustee who wants to keep up-to-date with the latest ways of thinking?
Are you a Manager who wants to know what you can reasonably expect from your Board?
Understanding Governance is a one-day workshop that gives you a practical guide to your role without all the fluff and jargon.
In this workshop you will discover:
- Common Models for Non-Profit Governance
What model does your Board currently use? Is this still the right model for your organisation?
If not, how can you transition from where you are, to where you want to be?
- Board Roles and Responsibilities
What does this look like in a real sense? Who does what?
What is the purpose of a Strategic Plan…really?
- Expectations of Trustees
What can be reasonably expected from individual trustees?
What behaviours should trustees demonstrate on a consistent basis?
- Best Practice Governance
What are the practices that ensure Boards are working at their highest level? How do you measure up? What small changes can you make to create even more impact as a Board?
Plus take a look at Succession Planning so that you always have good people lining up to take on a Governance role.
This workshop is a great introduction to Governance, and ensures that both new and experienced trustees all have the same understanding of what’s involved. Non-Profit Governance has changed dramatically in the last 10 years, so even if you’re an experienced Board member, you’ll find it useful to come along.
