Board Governance: Capacity Building Workshop at UYWI08

This Week!

If you are going to the Urban Youth Workers Institute at Azusa this week, it'd be great to meet you. Workshop 1:

Thursday, May 15, 2008
Time: 1:30 PM- 3:00 PM
Leadership Excellence—Good Governance
For Executive Directors and Board Members

How can you attract and retain good board members? Give them the right job and the right tools. Governance is the highest level of organizational leadership. The job of governance needs to emphasize values, vision, empowerment of both board and staff, and the strategic ability to lead leaders. Workshop participants (board members and staff leaders) will (1) gain appreciation of leadership through governance, (2) define roles of management and board distinct from one another, (3) identify the unique job outputs of the board, (4) avoid meddling and “rubber-stamping.”

Room: Duke 106; Azusa Pacific University
