Governing at the Speed of a Tweet: How Can Nonprofit Boards Keep Up?

There has never been a time when serving on a nonprofit board has been more challenging than right now.  Board oversight comes with more risk now than ever before – from operating in an political climate where a single presidential Tweet can upend current policy, to the potential risk of having a #MeToo incident among your nonprofit’s top leadership, to the possibility of a cyber breach impacting the most vulnerable users of your services.  In this complex landscape, the question becomes – how can nonprofit boards keep up?

Join Dottie Schindlinger, VP of Thought Leadership of Diligent (the parent company of BoardEffect) and co-author of the recently released book, Governance in the Digital Age, for a fast-paced exploration of ways nonprofit boards can keep up with the times.  We’ll explore some of the themes and lessons learned from the book, including:

  • In this age of digital disruption and Twitter-speed news, what actually helps directors govern better?
  • For organizations with the best performance results, what is different about the way their boards function?
  • To what extent are the norms and practices of governance beginning to transform to meet new challenges?
  • Perhaps most importantly, what approaches, tools and technology might help directors and boards transform governance for the digital age?
