Governance, a system for who will make decisions and how, is the guiding framework for your family philanthropy’s long-term success. There are many governance constructs that support an effective board, and different methods to engage family within each construct. But what are the common elements that contribute to an effective board across all governance constructs? In this webinar, learn the “nuts and bolts” of good governance, including common policies and practices, strategies for how to build an effective board and decision-making framework, the core roles and responsibilities of board members, and best practices for managing meetings, strategy conversations, and other concrete aspects of governance.
