Board Governance – How to guide the ship

This workshop will help participants build a plan for how to establish a governance structure defined to refer to structures and processes that are designed to ensure accountability, transparency, responsiveness, rule of law, stability, equity and inclusiveness, empowerment, and broad-based participation that guides the organization, so all members are engaged and their skills are utilized.
