An effective board of directors is critical to the success of a nonprofit organization. Directors are the custodians of charitable funds and stewards of the charitable mission. Understanding board roles, responsibilities, and expectations is crucial both for individuals serving on boards and those contemplating joining a board. Key responsibilities include guiding strategy, supervising, and interacting with management, managing conflicts, and selecting new directors. Perhaps the most important duty of a board is overseeing a nonprofit’s finances and working with management to build a sustainable budget to effectively further the nonprofit’s mission.
Whether you advise nonprofit organizations, are part of a nonprofit organization’s legal team, or serve as a director of a nonprofit organization, join us for a valuable overview of the role and responsibilities of nonprofit directors followed by a roundtable discussion with experienced nonprofit directors and officers on best practices for ensuring a vital and effective board and budget.
