Governing Committees 401

Governing Committees 401

The Short Course Governing Committees 401 will enable you to complete the design of the three standing governing committees with very little additional development. This well-developed set of policies is a turn-key process of establishing these committees.

The first part of the course shares the transition that is often needed from managing committees to governing committees in order to focus on governance instead of management.

The second describes the structure of each of the three committees: Governance, Financial Audit, and Relationship Review.

Finally, there are some ad hoc committees that may also be necessary from time to time.
