This three-day Forum is a comprehensive program that assists individuals in assessing their key knowledge, skills and abilities, and forming a plan for their own development, and the development of their board.
Program Objectives
  • Assessing directors’ knowledge, skills, and abilities, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and preparing development plans.
  • Introducing governance principles and tools for post-forum application in participants’ own boards of directors, trustees, and/or advisors.
  • Practicing governance through real-world case studies, vignettes, director interviews, and other experiential learning processes.
  • Providing resources for post-forum learning and application.
  • Networking with Governance Forum and other Center alumni for ongoing learning and development opportunities.
