Join us for an upcoming panel discussion where nonprofit industry experts will discuss their experiences and insights around best governance practices and efficient organizational policies and procedures. When invited to serve on a board, we often don't know what this entails, what our obligations are and how to provide the best service.
During the panel discussion, you will learn the essentials around nonprofit board member fiduciary duties. Topics to be addressed include:
- What are your obligations when serving as a board member of a nonprofit organization?
- How do nonprofit boards collaborate together well for necessary changes or to respond effectively in a moment of crisis?
- How do you identify the right elements for significant organizational change to successfully accomplish an organization's charitable mission?
- How do you avoid pitfalls in serving on a board?
