Getting Your Board On Board

March 27 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

- $400

Getting your Board Onboard is a one day workshop run in partnership with BayTrust.

The workshop is usually $950 per organisation. BayTrust subsidises qualifying organisations. Your organisation can only qualify for a subsidised spot at the workshop if you satisfy Bay Trust funding criteria and you can commit to having at least 80% of your Board and the GM/CEO participate in the workshop.

We run the workshop on a Saturday to ensure trustees/committee members are more likely to be available to attend.

Cost for your organisation: $400 (incl GST)
Spaces are limited, to book please call Gillian on 07 571 8819 or email: gillian@exult.co.nz

Are you a new trustee looking for clarity about your role and responsibilities?

Are you an experienced trustee who wants to keep up-to-date with the latest ways of thinking?

Are you a Manager who wants to know what you can reasonably expect from your Board?

Getting your Board Onboard is a one-day workshop that gives you a practical guide to your role without all the fluff and jargon. Short on time? We can tailor a workshop to suit your trustees time and work commitments.

In this workshop you will discover:

Common Models for Non-Profit Governance: Policeman, Partner and Pilot

  • What model does your Board currently use? Is this still the right model for your organisation?
  • If not, how can you transition from where you are, to where you want to be?

Board Roles and Responsibilities

  • What does this look like in a real sense? Who does what?

Expectations of Trustees

  • What can be reasonably expected from individual trustees?
  • What behaviours should trustees demonstrate on a consistent basis?

 Best Practice Governance

  • What are the practices that ensure Boards are working at their highest level?
  • How do you measure up?
  • What small changes can you make to create even more impact as a Board?

Succession Planning

  • How do you move-on stale or poor performing trustees?
  • How do you ensure that you always have good people lining up for a Governance role?

 What is the purpose of a Strategic Plan…really?

  • How to develop a useable Strategic Plan that doesn’t gather dust in the bottom drawer.

This workshop is a great introduction to Governance, and ensures that both new and experienced trustees all have the same understanding of what’s involved. Non-Profit Governance has changed dramatically in the last 10 years, so even if you’re an experienced Board member, you’ll find it useful to come along.

When: Saturday March 27th 2021 from 9.30am to 4pm

Cost: $400
