Practices for Healthy Board Governance

Wednesday, June 16, 2021
12:00 pm1:00 pm

Presenter: Propel Nonprofits
Cost: Free


Clear expectations are the foundation for healthy board meetings. Rather than focusing on eliminating problem people or wishing conflict away, a better solution is to use a set of practices for how the board will collectively create a healthy space for productive governance to take place. In this webinar Propel Nonprofits will explore four practices for healthy nonprofit board governance: recruiting and on-ramping, board structures, accountability (including board norms) and board development planning.
