Financial Training for Directors Series

Consisting of four weekly sessions, this series helps new and experienced directors build knowledge and confidence in monitoring financial health as part of their oversight role.

Explorations in  Policy Governance Series

This multi-session series examines various aspects of governance, including both practical skill-building as well as exploration of broader governance concepts and issues. Policy Governance will serve as a backdrop, but directors from organizations with diverse approaches to governance are welcome.
