Board Governance in Not-for-profit Organizations
Thursday, October 11, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)
At the Tyndale Leadership Centre, we believe that there is a real and growing crisis in Board leadership in the not-for-profit sector and we want to help.
- Do you struggle with your role and responsibilities as the Board Chair or Vice Chair?
- Do you have difficulty distinguishing between Board and Operational roles?
- How do you identify, develop, and assess Board members?
- Are you terrified of having lead in a time of crisis for your organization.
Steven Holmes, the Chair of the Tyndale Board and the Tyndale Leadership Centre would like you to join us at Tyndale University College & Seminary Bayview Campus to network, enjoy coffee, have some dessert and to learn from experts in these critical areas.
When: October 11, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Where: Tyndale Bayview Campus (3377 Bayview Ave)
