Participants in this webinar will learn about the law behind forming and maintaining committees as well as strategies for effectively making use of committees and staying in compliance with good governance practices.

Learning Objectives: Participants will understand board committees, committees of the corporation, how to form a committee, and rules and best practices for committees.

For Board members, executive directors, and managers of nonprofit organizations.
