Dollars, statements, reporting, oh my! Organizational finances should not be frustrating or intimidating. Let us help you begin to understand the financial information of the organizations you serve.
You are on a board! Now what? Join us as we help you understand what a board of directors is, what they do/why they exist, types of boards, board of director titles, and the role of officers. We will use the NWT SPAR sector as examples to introduce different terminology: bylaws, board roles & responsibilities, and governance.
We have all been in busy meetings, where it is hard to get to a place where a clear decision can be made and board frustration rises. The board chair plays a pivotal role in running effective meetings to avoid losing volunteers and getting on with the business. Join us for a moderated panel discussion with three seasoned chairs who will share their experience on tips and tricks for keeping everyone engaged, getting through meetings on time, and ensuring an effective team decision-making process.
Risk is everywhere! Join us as we explore what risk is, different types of risk (financial, programming, reputational, governance, and human resources), and risk management strategies for your organization.
Today’s successful strategies are the ones that are deliberate, competitive, and able to adapt to the changing environment. Strategic adaptation must become an ongoing, iterative process of hypothesis, experimentation, learning, and action. Join us to discuss the key elements of an effective strategy and the pitfalls to avoid ensuring your organization thrives!
Behind every set of numbers is a story waiting to be discovered. Let's dive in to learn what tale your organization's financial statements have to tell!
