While deeply committed to the purpose of the organizations they serve, many board members and their staff leaders may not be fully aware of the legal ramifications of governance work.
United Way is pleased to partner with Priti Shah, of PRAXIS Conflict Consulting for a workshop that will contribute to stronger board governance. Participants in the workshop will gain capacities to:
- Assess your board’s vulnerability to liability
- Review the role of the board versus the role of the board member
- Examine board and ED/CEO: moving from competition to cooperation
- Define liability, including personal liability for board members
- Identify potential liabilities arising from Manitoba and Canadian law
- Recognize to whom the board is accountable
- Understand: What are the duties of board members? How can the duties be implemented?
- Explore risk management and liability protection - Insurance and Indemnification
- Evaluation, screening and monitoring
- Develop a board due diligence checklist
