There is a range of not-for-profit organizations that operate in Canada - from small community organizations to those with a national or international mandate. Although there are significant differences amongst them, many not-for-profit boards face similar challenges in terms of oversight and maintaining sustainability. Directors must think creatively about mission and purpose, make the most of scarce resources, attract and retain quality staff, find new supporters and/or members, and renew and optimize their own work as governors. So how can not for profit directors overcome these and other challenges, and help their organization fulfill their important mandates?
Join us for this discussion that will examine the key challenges facing the boards of not-for-profit organizations. Our speaker, Lyn McDonell, will share her recommendations around practical “better governance” practices that link well to emerging trends in not-for-profit governance. Lyn's goal is to provide impactful strategies that you will be able to implement in your organization. While some of the challenges facing these organizations are common across all organizations, there are a number of governance challenges unique to the not-for-profit world. As such, this webinar is a must for currently serving not-for-profit board members, executives who work with not-for-profit boards as well as individuals who are looking to get their start in board service through a not-for-profit board.
