About the Workshop
This workshop is intended for professional staff, volunteers and students who wish to improve the performance of a board of directors for a non-profit arts or heritage organization. It is open to those currently serving on a board, individuals who staff a board of directors, and those who wish to prepare for board service. Participants will review the typical duties of a board and discuss variations from working boards to policy setting boards. As a group we will review how to attract new board members, provide training for them and what standards can be set for board performance. There will be substantial time for group interaction, questions and answers with the instructor
