Nonprofit organization leaders often struggle with enhancing board and committee effectiveness in a way that helps (rather than impedes) staff’s ability to carry out the execution of the board’s plan. Hear real-world insights from a long-time nonprofit executive for one of the nation’s most innovative social enterprise charities and learn how legal requirements and guardrails inform efforts to change and modernize your nonprofit’s governance practices. Our panelists will discuss:

  • Achieving a diverse board representative of the community in which you operate 
  • Recognizing and adapting to current trends in member participation and interest
  • Best practices for enhancing compliance with board member fiduciary duties
  • Refresher on key legal issues related to boards and committees
