NCFP Webinar: Governance Practices for Better Decision Making

Thursday, April 14, 2022 11:00am - 12:15pm CDT

Governance practices of philanthropic families are evolving to include more diverse voices and perspectives. Two common pathways for donors to become more informed and proximate to the communities they partner with include: the appointment of an expert or community advisory committee to guide social impact strategies, decisions, and appointing independent board members. What are the considerations a family must explore before and after bringing on independent board members, or creating an advisory committee? How can a family position its shared decision-making model for success? Join us for a conversation on how to create an advisory committee or add independent directors, and how to ensure that these models are effective.
