• Board polices course tile

    In an Era of Rapid Change, How Strong are Your Board Policies?   

    A not-for-profit organization is as strong as its policies. The Board Policies are an important risk management tool as well as it is a guideline on how the board functions. It guides the Board toward ethical decision making and conflict management; ultimately protecting the organization.

    In this workshop, we will explore terms and definitions related to Board policies, the difference between Board policies and operational policies, and as a Board how to prepare, develop and implement Board policies to create a strong and effective board governance manual.
