Board Governance Workshop – CAPE BRETON – Sydney
October 7, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Facilitated by Daren Okafo, Manager – Learning Programs – CSCNS, the Board Governance Workshop seeks to teach boards the key elements of Good Governance.
Good governance is an essential part of any organization’s effectiveness and success. Regular evaluations and reviews of your board and its practices, as well as regular board education and updates, will ensure your board and organization is operating in compliance with best practice and effective stewardship of the assets of your organization. This is key to being productive, strategic, ethical and sustainable.
This program has been designed to assist in building your board into a highly functional, well-informed, supportive and service oriented body, capable of playing a core role in guiding your organization toward its strategic goals by leveraging current best practice alongside the skills, experience and knowledge that your board members already possess.
NOTE: Lunch will NOT be provided. There will be a one-hour break to allow time for lunch.
