Presenter Doug Eadie will provide participants with detailed practical guidance in designing and implementing board standing committees that can serve as powerful vehicles for involving board members in doing truly high-impact governing work that makes a real difference in the affairs of their nonprofits.

Drawing on his work with over 500 nonprofit organizations over the past 25 years, Doug will describe the concrete, substantial benefits of putting a well-designed board committee structure in place, will introduce a contemporary committee structure that corresponds to the board’s broad streams of governing judgments and decisions, including detailed functional descriptions of each committee, will provide detailed guidance in implementing a new structure successfully, and will describe how to involve the CEO and senior executives in supporting board committees.
