Governance Affinity Group:Governance Innovation Lab
The Governance Affinity Group is gearing up for its Innovation Lab at the Alliance's national conference on Wednesday, October 10th in Hartford. The group is organizing a workshop within the session for all to attend, entitled"Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! Myth Busters: Challenging So Called "Best Practices" in Governance Practice."Myths and urban legends about nonprofit governance withstand the test of time. However, which ones are based on evidence and which ones should be debunked? This unique, highly interactive and fun workshop will highlight empirical research using the NPR's "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" game format! We will challenge common wisdoms and anecdotal practice and generate a lively discussion with participants, identifying research-based governance practices and those needing additional evidence.
Additionally, we will be discussing our findings from our 2nd phase of research on The Leadership of Boards
- a study focused on the selection, preparation, diversity, and shared leadership of boards! And we're working on a unique set of research-based governance practice tools! We welcome new members and look forward to seeing you in October.Contact Judy Freiwirth for more information.
