Board Governance Training Webinars

Board Governance Overview

Webinar training series for not-for-profit boards & staff


Governance refers to the oversight of an organization. Best practices in governance means that a board ensures their optimal performance through the implementation of effective systems.  In three 1½-hour webinars, Deb provides an overview of best practices in board governance. These sessions serve as both an orientation to good governance as well as a refresher for those who have previously received governance training.

The Webinar Modules

The following key areas will be explored with your board of directors:

Module 1: The Rules
What is the board’s role in good governance? What are bylaws, policies, terms of reference and what do you do with them?

Module 2: The Strategy
How do you handle your board’s year effectively and efficiently within volunteers’ limited time? We discover the board’s annual work plan, meeting agendas and strategic plan.

Module 3: The Players
How do you find the right people for your board? We talk about the recruitment and development of all your directors, having effective committees and the senior staff person’s annual performance review.
