Webinar: Good Governance
The Context for Innovative Board Leadership
September 15, 2021 1:30 ET

High-performing boards are guided by a sound mission and a compelling vision. Within this context, agile boards identify strategies for moving forward. Without it, strategic plans become static and rob leadership of the flexibility needed to be innovative and responsive. This workshop is designed to help you reframe your organization’s mission as the guidepost for leadership, decision-making, and discussion—and to ensure strategic momentum by leading with vision. This workshop is presented by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement.
