The final event in a three-part Leading for Good Lake County 2019 series, please join us May 22nd for Increasing Board Engagement dinner and presentation! The topic of the presentation will be Board Roles & Responsibilities.

Today’s nonprofit board members and their organizations face a challenging environment due to a variety of factors (including increasing regulation and oversight). How should nonprofit leaders support   their board members to help them react to this environment? How can board members satisfy their fiduciary obligations while also allowing organizations to maximize their impact and fulfill their missions?

In this program, you will acquire the necessary tools to assist executives and board members to maximize engagement and effectiveness in a non-profit environment; laying this groundwork is critical for the organization’s future strategic planning. You will also explore the key roles and responsibilities of staff leadership and board members and create a framework for sound and effective governance. Kellogg Center for Nonprofit Management faculty will engage you with a rich mix of classroom learning and interactive discussion to further your knowledge on good governance practices of nonprofit board members and senior executives.
