Best Practices in Leadership

Local nonprofits urged to attend

In order to avoid duplication in our efforts to bring a series of board development seminars to local nonprofits, Greene Giving, the Morgan Family Foundation and the Yellow Springs Community Foundation on behalf of Leading Greene have elected to support this program which was already planned for September 16 at the Clark State campus in Beavercreek.

The Board: Best Practices in Leadership

Nearly every charitable organization is confronting the need for change at some level, whether defining and evaluating the mission and other strategic planning needs, altering areas of service, identifying stable sources of support, addressing fiscal pressures or otherwise. These pressures alone call for highly effective leadership from the Board of Directors for any charitable organization, but in the current regulatory landscape, best practices in governance and oversight are not just nice to have, but are mandated.

Learn what your board of directors must do to comply and lead in this current environment regarding:
  • The board of directors’ Roles and Responsibilities;
  • Compliance and Management Issues;
  • Succession Planning; and,
  • Addressing Conflicts of Interest.
