According to the 2000 National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (NSGVP), about 41 percent of Canadian volunteers serve on boards and committees. Despite their deep commitment to countless causes and organizations, many board members are generally unclear regarding the structure of – and liability issues surrounding – non-profit organizations.
Many individuals new to the role of director are unclear as to the purposes of bylaws, board development, and volunteer program management. At the same time, issues of liability are more prominent in people's minds.
The six modules in this program will provide boards and staff of non-profit organizations with an understanding of the rights, obligations and liability issues associated with the role of director.
This program will be of interest to a volunteer sitting on a board of directors for a non-profit organization, a volunteer interested in serving as a member of a board of directors or a staff person involved in the management of a non-profit organization.
