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:

·        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
