This GPC Not-for-Profit Governance seminar is designed to tackle the issues that have the greatest impact on overall board effectiveness and good governance for not-for-profit organizations. Providing you with tools to deal with shifting priorities, new risks and increased complexity in this sector, in order to help you keep pace with the speed of resulting governance changes.

Rethinking your governance model to have your Board focus on its contribution is critical. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create a new platform from which you and your Board can deliver greater value.

Each participant will have the opportunity to identify their own governance priorities and challenges prior to the Boot Camp, and will leave having the opportunity to identify opportunities to address their own issues in practical and impactful ways.

Who Should Attend

All sessions are designed for and open to NFP Board leaders, Board members and their governance professionals. The program is formatted to be conducive to acquiring knowledge and tips that are immediately applicable in any organization.
