Many professionals want to serve on nonprofit boards to develop their leadership skills, to give back to the community in which they live and work, and to use as a springboard to sit on for-profit boards. While personally and professionally rewarding, serving on a nonprofit board involves a serious commitment of time and talent. To be successful as a board director, you need to know the principles of nonprofit governance, the role of the board, the responsibilities of board directors and how an effective board operates.
Join us for this one-hour session (including 15 minutes for Q&A), as lawyer Josephine Victoria Yam walks us through the fundamentals on how to succeed as a nonprofit board director.
Ms. Yam, CEO & Co-Founder of B3 Canada, will share the lessons she learned at the Stanford Graduate School of Business on nonprofit leadership combined with the insights she gained from her significant governance experience working in the corporate, government and nonprofit sectors in Canada and internationally. She will highlight some case studies to illustrate important governance concepts through actual nonprofit board dilemmas as they show up in real life.
The webinar will cover:
