Join us for the first session of four-part series designed to help nonprofit organizations and community volunteers learn how to recruit, educate and retain a committed and effective board of directors.
7:00 – 8:00 AM | Hot breakfast in the Mendoza College of Business Atrium
8:00 – 9:30 AM | NONPROFIT BOARD GOVERNANCE: LEARNING FOR MISSION EFFECTIVENESS
Presenter: Thomas Harvey, Former Director Emeritus Nonprofit Professional Development, University of Notre Dame
In this opening session, Tom will prioritize the fundamental purpose of a nonprofit board, namely its commitment to mission. He will argue that, like any organized enterprise, a nonprofit board’s success will depend on a combination of commitment to mission and to a process for good group decision making. Tom will share some proven ideas of how boards can draw upon group theory and good business practices to maximize effectiveness.
Each participant will receive a free copy of the book, Nonprofit Governance, co-authored by two of this year’s presenters, Thomas Harvey and John Tropman.
This book will offer all the nonprofit boards involved a resource that will leverage ideas for quality governance for many years to come.
