Effective Board Governance

Effective Board Governance New

14 CEU

This course is designed to provide procedural tools for those individuals who work on a board of directors. In this course, we will be learning how to maintain an organized atmosphere when it comes to deliberations and decision-making on a board of directors. We will be talking about how to present proposals for action (motions) and how to amend the proposal and even how to modify the process itself as a board would seek to examine the proposal. We will also be talking about the different types of governing documents of which a board of directors needs to be familiar. We will also discuss the varying scopes of authority and responsibility that a board would exercise as based on the uniqueness of the organization that the board serves. Finally, we will be looking at the accountability factor that is attached to working on a board of directors. It is our desire to see you become a more effective member of a board of directors as you work through the content of this course, and we are going to do everything we can to help you accomplish that goal.
