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.

Governance 101 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 6-week online 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.

The course can be completed as an individual board member or with a group of fellow board members. Participants can log on to the online platform 24/7 to read learning materials, complete learning activities, or connect with the course facilitator and other participants. The course is facilitated for six-weeks and learning materials are available for 14 weeks, along with access to monthly webinars.
