Training Overview

Does your organization have a Governance Committee? Change your approach to create an engaged board.

Nonprofits often have nominations committees responsible for putting forward nominees for board membership and officer positions. After the rush to find and enlist suitable candidates, many board leaders and executive directors experience a lack of board engagement.

The theory and practice of nonprofit board governance have evolved. One of the best inventions has been the Governance Committee—a group of board members working year-round on the health and functioning of the board of directors. You can replace your Nominations Committee with a Governance Committee to benefit from ongoing board development and recruiting.
