Boards That Work: Building and Sustaining an Effective Governance Structure
We can’t lead in a vacuum – the work of leadership is done within a larger system. Whether you are on the board, a member of a committee, part of the executive committee, or a staff member, working within a well-defined governance structure can help to clarify roles and responsibilities. This session will highlight effective models for structuring and managing the congregational board.
