Excellence in Governance Program in Partnership with NH Center for Nonprofits

The nonprofit governance model — relying on unpaid volunteers to govern an organization — demands a high level of ethical integrity. In partnership with the NH Center for Nonprofits, the Excellence in Governance seminar program is designed to enrich the knowledge of nonprofit board and staff leaders across New Hampshire so they will provide leadership and decision-making in accordance with best practices of ethics in governance.

This program addresses the Ethics and Accountability in the 21st Century Nonprofit Board, focusing on the stewardship of the organization in assuring ethical behavior and providing sound fiscal oversight. It is perfect for new board members or experienced board leaders wanting to brush up on new approaches.
