Avoiding Critical Mistakes of Nonprofit Boards

Through an interactive panel discussion, we will explore critical mistakes that nonprofit boards may encounter. We will discuss the issues surrounding these mistakes and how to correct them, as well as how to develop best practices to avoid them. Our session will include:
  • Failing to monitor programming effectiveness or make course corrections
  • Not wrestling with tough questions
  • Board-level confidences are not kept
  • One person or a small group runs the show
  • Executives and inactive board members who are not held accountable
