The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Organizational Effectiveness (OE) Initiative is partnering with the Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations (LANO) to present a Governance Fundamentals and Board Roles and Responsibilities workshop.

This session is designed for board members, executive directors, and senior staff who are interested in deepening their understanding of nonprofit governance and better aligning the work of the board to heighten board engagement and maximize its impact.

Participants are encouraged to bring their bylaws, governance handbook, and recent board meeting agendas for reference during the series.

In this workshop, we’ll cover the following topics:

  • The purpose of nonprofit governance and the board’s legal obligations of duty, loyalty and obedience.
  • Using CompassPoint’s Governance and Management Support tool, we’ll discuss the specific roles and responsibilities of board members.
  • How to tailor board engagement based on organizational needs and individual board members’ interests, skills, and capacity.
  • How to create a powerful leadership partnership among the board, executive director, and other staff.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand nonprofit governance and the purpose of a nonprofit board
  • Understand the legal obligations of nonprofit board members.
  • Understand the distinction between governance and management support; understand the board’s roles and responsibilities in each area.
  • Understand the interdependent governance relationship between the ED and the board.
  • Have identified ideas for how to strengthen the partnership between the board and staff.

The session will be held on Tuesday, April 25th from 9:00am-12noon at the Center for Philanthropy (919 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70130). The workshop is free, but registration is required. Please click here to register.
