Webinar 201: Visionary Boards: What They Are and Why You Need One
October 19, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Transformational technology, changing demographics, business model disruption, economic and geopolitical uncertainty, and new global competitors are just a few of the external forces impacting nonprofits today. The role of the board is to help guide the organization successfully into the future while governing it for the present. Boards move towards becoming visionary when they excel at providing oversight, insight, and, most important, foresight. A gold standard visionary board anticipates disruption by seeing weak signals (not only big patterns), sets the right tone by pushing the organization to overcome inertia and maintain relevance, and factors long term considerations into succession planning, performance goals, compensation incentives, and resource investment and allocation. This webinar will answer, “What are visionary boards and why do nonprofits need them?”
