Governance Training Bite #2 (Christchurch): Boards & managers - getting the balance right

  • Community House 301 Tuam Street Christchurch (map)

This sessions gets down to the nitty-gritty of good governance, dealing with the most common question and concern that non-profit leaders have about boards. How can boards and managers work constructively together? Is there a clear dividing line between governing and day-to-day management? If not, how do we sort it out in practice? Does that change over time, and is it effected by the life-cycle stage of the non-profit organisation?

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.
