Effective board membership requires more than good intentions and meeting attendance.  Understanding the objective and true roles and responsibilities of the “job” of board member is the first step towards effectiveness. Attendees will come to understand the full responsibilities of board membership, in both the context of being part of a larger whole, as well as an individual. In addition, this class will show how to maximize the all-important partnership of board and executive director. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of key elements of board responsibility, such as the law’s performance expectations of nonprofit board members, strategic planning, fundraising, financial management, and the care and feeding of the board. Attendees will leave knowing that they can now cement their good intentions in best practices, including being able to apply standard tools for board assessment and governance and sample essential policies to their organizations.
