Training Overview

Do your board policies work? Inspire action and alignment.

Policies define the guiding principles and intentions of your nonprofit’s governing board. They facilitate forward motion by providing authority for action and keeping everyone on the same page.

You must promote high-level thinking and alignment to maximize the value of the policy-making process. A healthy set of policies can help your board avoid endlessly retreading the same ground, prevent individuals from acting unilaterally in the group’s name, and safeguard against legal or ethical lapses.
