A dynamic governing body is at the heart of any thriving nonprofit corporation. Engaged client board members play a crucial role in ensuring that their organization can carry out its mission successfully. In this session, LSC will review the most important duties of board members, share effective strategies that LSC grantees and other nonprofits follow to promote client board member engagement, and discuss LSC’s performance criteria for grantee governing bodies. The attendees will gain awareness of their roles and duties as board members and leave with ideas for developing and maintaining an engaged board of directors. LSC will acquire additional insight into the best practices it is developing for enhancing the voice of client board members among its grantees. Participants will have the opportunity to network and share ideas about enhancing the voice of client board members.
