Creating a high functioning board is not a matter of luck. It is a matter of skill, policies, practices, and paperwork, and having each is a core part of ensuring your board is on point and executing at the highest level possible. Without a high performing board, your nonprofit risks decreased productivity, diminished development, and ultimately less progress towards accomplishing your mission.

Please join Dustin Johnson as he guides you through best practices for developing bulletproof board governance policies and procedures.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • A template board matrix, including examples of what your board matrix should include and industry-specific qualifications
  • A written board vetting process
    • Why should you put more time and effort into hiring staff than you do putting someone in control of the organization?
    • Examples of specific policies to put into place, questions you should ask, and red flags to look for
  • Bylaw policies: Ensuring your governing documents are air-tight around board responsibilities
  • Policies and procedures: A glove-and-hand to your bylaws and a solid set of policies and procedures give you and your board a more specific set of expectations, goals and desired outcomes
  • A board job description: Give your board members the benefit of a road map. Lay out expectations of your board, just as they should be doing with you – and like you are doing with your staff
  • Statement of board commitment: The hardest job is to ensure everyone has the same set of standards, ethics, and norms
