Governance Training Bite #1 (Christchurch): How non profit boards add value

  • Community House 301 Tuam Street Christchurch (map)

What’s the secret to governance that really makes a difference for non-profit organisations? In this interactive session you will learn how your board can be less boring, and achieve much more than just go through the motions or check up on what others are doing.

Two important tools are offered to help make this possible, which provide the foundation for all the following Governance Bites sessions. Believe it or not, this doesn’t involve a call to greater commitment or doing more and more work as board members, just watching how we do things .

This session will be led by Garth Nowland-Foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and not for profit governance expert. Garth is a director of LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance & Leadership.

GOVERNANCE BITES are a series of free after-five events offering practical development opportunities in bite-sized pieces for 'time poor' and cash-strapped community leaders involved in non-profit boards in Canterbury, served up with pizza. They are sponsored by Volunteering Canterbury, on behalf of Ōtautahi Partnership for Strengthening Community Organisations, and are free thanks to funding from Rātā Foundation. This is the first in the series.
