David Renz Organizational Development
Led by David Renz, Ph.D.

How can staff and their board members actually achieve the level of impact and value that is being demanded of them?

The days of board as invisible partner in the work of a nonprofit organization are long gone. Increasingly, in a Sarbanes-Oxley world that demands more accountability for all organizations and boards, nonprofit board members find that they too are being held to higher standards as they must account for the success and effectiveness of their agencies. 

This seminar focuses on the knowledge and resources board members & executives need in order to understand the latest in legal, political, and organizational accountability.  This session will introduce nonprofit leaders to the standards to which boards of the future will be held, and provide resources and tools that they can use to strengthen their board’s performance and accountability.

Who Should Attend: Board members, Executives, Staff that support boards.

Workshop participants will leave this session with essential understanding of the key dimensions of board accountability and how cutting-edge nonprofit boards address them, including:

  • A sample nonprofit agency accountability checklist/self-assessment;
  • A sample nonprofit board accountability self-assessment;
  • Sample policies to that help nonprofits address Sarbanes-Oxley requirements;
  • Sample policies on conflicts of interest and whistleblower protection;
  • An annotated Internet reference list for additional and detailed information on nonprofit board and agency accountability.
