Webinar: Nonprofit Board Governance and the Executive Director - A Partnership for Success

Presented by Alicia Schatteman, Ph.D., Acting Director for Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies and Associate Professor and Pam Clark Reidenbach, M.S.S.W., Co-Founder and Director of the Northern Illinois Center for Nonprofit Excellence (NICNE), Northern Illinois University.

Description: In these critical times, the leadership of the board and their relationship with the executive are crucial as they together need to re-engineer the organization for post-COVID-19 operation. Ensuring a strong, positive partnership between the Board President and Executive Director will enhance board engagement and set the tone for other board member relations. Effectively use each other's skills and networks to better leverage resources and advocate for the organization they serve. This workshop will explore basic roles, responsibilities and legal duties of the board, characteristics of exceptional boards, and the board's role in adapting to significant change requiring a focus on core competencies, partnerships, and new funding models.
