The Role of the Board Chair
Four 60-minute webinars, Tuesdays starting January 15 at 3:00 p.m. EST.
Leading a group of governance volunteers can be challenging as well as rewarding. Serving as the chair of the board is not a role for the uninspired and undecided. In this workshop, participants will learn about the chair's responsibility in strengthening and improving the leadership work of the board as a whole.
This course is a great primer for new board chairs and excellent refresher for more seasoned board members! Whether you're a current chair, chair-elect, or head up a committee, this workshop covers leadership skills every board member needs. Topics include: leadership characteristics of effective board leaders, key relationships in and out of the board room, your leadership legacy, facilitating meetings that matter, and ways to engage individual board members.
At the end, you'll have tips and tools to help you start your term with confidence and enthusiasm!
