Navigating one’s role on a nonprofit board can be challenging. Unlike most other volunteer work, members of the board are directly responsible for the organization, from its mission to its finances and its ultimate programmatic success.
This webinar will explain the legal and fiduciary duties of care, obedience and loyalty. Participants will understand the roles of the board President, Treasurer and Secretary, and explore ideas for additional officers. We will discuss exemplary land trust committee structures and how they integrate. We’ll investigate how to evaluate your board’s performance as well as your individual performance in order to improve organizational functioning and increase your satisfaction. Finally, we’ll look at strategies for troubleshooting common obstacles, to take your board from good to great.
