Boards are essential to the oversight and operation of non-profit organizations, and in fact, non-profit organizations which are properly governed have demonstrated to be more effective and more likely to succeed, than poorly governed ones. However, understanding what a board does and for what it is responsible can be challenging. Our Introduction to Board Governance workshop will help you meet the challenge!


Workshop Overview

United Way is pleased to partner with Dr. Andrea Rounce and Dr. Karine Levasseur for a workshop that will contribute to strengthening your understanding of the fundamental principles of effective board governance. Participants in Introduction to Board Governance will gain knowledge in the following areas:

  • The purpose, roles, and responsibilities of boards in the voluntary sector, including legal and regulatory aspects of governing;
  • Greater familiarity with board governance models;
  • Board-staff relationships; and
  • Potential areas of conflicts for boards.


About the Facilitators


Karine Levasseur, Ph.D

Karine is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She earned her PhD. in the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University. While Karine has many research interests, she is particularly interested in how governments in Canada relate (or do not relate) to voluntary organizations. Her research explores how voluntary organizations can become more meaningfully involved in public policy development, and not just resigned to implement public policy decisions made without their involvement.

Andrea Rounce, Ph.D

Andrea is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She teaches and researches in public administration. A primary focus of Andrea’s research is government's use of public opinion research and consultation; public sector governance; and research methodology. Emphasizing the need to bridge theory and practice, Andrea also works with public sector organizations on policy and governance issues while working collaboratively on community engagement and education projects around elections and voting.
