Event description

Description

Did you know that there are more than 27,300 registered non-profit societies in BC? While we all follow the same requirements set out in the BC Societies Act, we do not all manage our boards or govern our societies in the same ways.

Building Better Boards is a great way to explore and identify different governance models, better understand individual and organizational roles and responsibilities, and learn more about how you communicate, learn, and advance the needs of your organization at the board table.

This course is designed for first time board members who want to learn about board governance, existing board members who are reviewing their roles and responsibilities and building their governance toolkits, and for staff members who are engaging with board members for the first time and/or in new ways.

This is an online course that you log in and study at your own pace over the course of 6 weeks. Once you register (and you can register at any time) you will have 8 weeks of access to the course content. There is no beginning or end date with this course.

Learning labs will be available once a month that are included as registration with this course. You can attend 1 learning lab or all of the learning labs. These will be scheduled meetings using zoom (online meeting platform) where you can ask questions and connect with others who are learning about board governance. Visit our website for more details about the learning labs and to register: www.volunteervictoria.bc.ca
