GOVERNANCE SALON – Expanding the Conversation on Governance and the BC Societies Act
You know you must both transition and revise your constitution and bylaws to be compliant with the new BC Societies Act. When you opened up the conversation on what you had to do, all kinds of other questions emerged… “What’s the impact of the new legislation on how we operate as a board and as an organization?” “Should our ‘senior manager’ be a Director and what does that actually mean?” “Should the members elect the Officers or should the members elect the directors and the directors elect the Officers?” “How big should our board be to be both efficient and effective?” “Should we get liability insurance and if we should, how much coverage do we need?”
If you’re asking yourself these types of governance questions, join us at this ‘Governance Salon’. You’ll be able to send in questions in advance that you want answered. And we’ll use the questions from the Networking and Information-Sharing session that immediately precedes this Salon. We’ll address the themes that emerge and explore approaches that will help you make the decisions that best suit your organization’s culture and capacity.
Join facilitators Ann Moskow and Claire Rettie for this two-hour session. They’ll help you get clarity on your specific topic, insight on broader governance issues, and learn from your peers. Ann and Claire will recommend resources for you to explore.
