Board Leadership: Core Competencies Workshop Series

* Building on the work of Chait, Ryan & Taylor, Governance as Leadership (2005)

The Institute on Governance (IOG) has developed an innovative program that involves a series of evening workshop modules incorporating core competencies training for volunteer Directors with Not-For-Profit (NFP) organizations. This program will teach what it means to be a Board Member, the roles and responsibilities associated with being on a Board, the key skill sets required to be effective and how to build and maintain effective relationships within the Board and with other stakeholders.

These workshops will also provide you with an opportunity to explore governance concepts through selected case studies and from the facilitated sharing of experiences among workshop participants.
