BOARD GOVERNANCE WORKSHOP FOR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
This exciting new workshop, brought to you in part by the Nanaimo Chamber & On Board, will be lead by Deb McClelland. This course is designed to inform, educate and assist both volunteer board members and staff about 'governance best practices' and the effective operation of a Board of Directors. This workshop will be of particular interest to Non-Profit Organizations.
In five short hours, learn the 7 key elements of good governance and how to hone strong partnerships between board members and CEO's. You will also work to define principles for governing your organization, review reference terminology for committees and learn how to develop consent agendas, performance evaluations and adhere to policy. Lunch, snacks & refreshments provided.
Over the years, Deb’s passion has been to assist boards in realizing their potential by travelling around the country teaching numerous workshops on the subject. Deb has served on many boards, including national and provincial boards, for over thirty-five years. She also worked as Executive Director at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce for nineteen years, supporting her board of directors as they transitioned to a solid governance model. Within all these experiences, she came to realize that governance, when done right, could be fun and easy. That is why she has developed templates, examples and exercises for boards to follow so that they can easily adopt what she calls the Seven Key Elements of Good Governance.
Deb has been recognized as Executive of the Year and Chamber of the Year by her provincial network and Executive of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada. Most recently, she was appointed to the Council of Excellence by a panel of her peers across the country and appointed as Fellow of the BC Chamber of Commerce.
