Board Development Training – The Fundamentals of Governance (Length varies)

Board governance done poorly creates significant frustration for members and can lead to organizational dysfunction. When run well, boards contribute to the vibrancy and success of the organization they govern. This training will enhance the effectiveness of your Board of Directors by building clarity and understanding about the roles and responsibilities of the board, the relationship and authority between staff and board, and the specific, supportive duties of individual board members. Participants will learn tools for effective board meetings and decision making. They will also come away with a deeper understanding of the policy, procedure and processes essential to a well-functioning board.

This workshop is presented by ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance.
