This webinar was originally scheduled for Tuesday, May 7, 2024. Unfortunately the speaker has a family emergency and we have rescheduled the webinar to Wednesday, May 8, 2024.

Description

A well-defined set of organizational and governance standards and best practices help boost board efficiency and performance, engage current board members, cultivate volunteers and future leaders, and create a positive board culture. Learn the difference between bylaws and operational standards and what belongs in each along with tips for a regular review of both. Learn how to evaluate your current committee structure, determine the needs of your organization, and implement change for increased engagement and improved efficiency and outcomes.
