There has never been a time when serving on a nonprofit board has been more challenging than right now. Board governance is loaded with both more risk and more potential for reward than ever before – from the increased ramifications of cyberattacks at the same time technology presents new opportunities to engage constituents and community stakeholders-- to new apps that have the potential to transform approaches to service delivery, to a political climate that can pivot with a single ‘Tweet.’ In this complex landscape, the question becomes – what can governance capacity builders do to actually help board members govern more effectively? Join us for an interview and discussion with Dottie Schindlinger, author of the forthcoming book based on recent research in the field, Governance in the Digital Age: A Guide for the Modern Corporate Board Director to explore these issues. Our moderator, Regina Podhorin, will pose challenging questions focused on the role of capacity builders in this environment: • How are the trends and challenges of the digital age changing governance practices – and what does that mean for capacity building around the core elements of governance? • Perhaps most importantly, what approaches, tools and technology might help boards transform governance to keep pace with digital technology? • In what ways can boards use technology to better engage their constituents and community stakeholders in the mission of the organization? • What is the compelling argument that capacity builders must make about sustaining an optimal balance between responding to the speed of change in information/technology and careful deliberation as part of good governance?
