Board Governance
Institute of Fair Management Course #104
ADDITIONAL FEE REQUIRED**

What is the true job of a governing board? How can board and staff members effectively fulfill this job? How do you  engage your board post-COVID-19? This symposium focuses on the principles of effective group leadership that        help boards define and focus on their work while empowering and energizing staff to get the work delegated done.  Bill Charney presents an integrated model for systematic and comprehensive clarity of roles and accountabilities. He addresses effective delegation, the role and responsibility of the board, board composition and structure, the conduct of board members (including conflicts of interest), the relationship between the board and chief executive, and how to motivate and keep board members engaged during COVID-19. The symposium is presented by Bill Charney, CEO/principal consultant of Charney Associates. Charney is a highly respected consultant in leadership and governance education for boards of directors and the agencies they lead. He is the co-author of The Board Member’s Playbook. Prior to founding Charney Associates, he was the founder and CEO of Denver’s Cherry Creek Arts Festival.
Presented by Bill Charney (Charney Associates)
