Building Better Governance Seminar Series 2018

VONNE is again partnering with Cass CCE and Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland to deliver the Building Better Governance programme for North East England.

Getting your governance right can be tricky for nonprofit organisations. However, it is absolutely crucial for achieving your organisation's mission.  Building Better Governance will help you to:

  • Understand what constitutes effective governance
  • Create opportunities for self-reflection and confidential peer-to-peer learning

And ultimately improve your organisation's governance.

How the programme works

This seminar series will be exploratory and incremental. You will be encouraged to apply your learning in the workplace. The series will be highly interactive using a mix of short inputs sharing research and best practice alongside insightful group work, in which you will create and combine to really extend your knowledge of governance for nonprofits.  In order to minimise the disruption to busy schedules, the programme is structured so that you come together three times over three months for six modules.

The sessions are followed up with course materials and additional support and good practice materials from Cass CCE on a separate Wordpress site which will also be available on the VONNE website.

The course is aimed at medium sized organisations although all are welcome, in particular the course would benefit chairs, trustees, chief executives and others who have a governance function within their nonprofit organisation.
