The power and impact of an association is always best when the board is a high performing, strategic thinking entity. Non-profit organizations have a duty to recruit great board members and provide those board members with the training they need to succeed. After all, governing skills are different from executive and management skills!
NSC works with clients to design customized, highly interactive board training sessions. Although sessions are tailored to meet specific organizational needs, NSC’s interactive sessions often include modules on:
- Practices of high performing boards
- Legal duties
- Board human resources: recruitment, assessment, development
- Board’s role in setting direction
- Performance oversight
- Building / strengthening the CEO board partnership
- Roles and responsibilities
Board Orientation Program Design
A sound board member orientation process is more than one orientation session and is an important component of board development. NSC works with clients to design comprehensive orientation processes, including engaging orientation sessions.
