Not-for-Profit Briefing: The lifecycle of a Not-for-Profit Board

Event Date:

State Reception Centre, Frasers, Kings Park
Fraser Avenue
Kings Park
West Perth

Directors on Not-for-Profit boards – both large and small, bring varied experience and knowledge to the boardroom. As a single NFP organisation grows and transitions, the board will require a diverse set of directors with varied skills to meet new challenges along the way.

At inception, an NFP Board may focus on fundraising strategies, stakeholder engagement, human capital and risk. As the organisation grows and matures, decision making on large capital investments, brand, acquisitions and M&A may become the focus. Good governance throughout this process is about ensuring the right people are around the table at the right time.

So how can boards apply the right kind of succession planning for boards and management? Join a panel of highly experienced NFP directors to analyse and discuss the different stages of growth for a NFP organisation and what capacity and competencies are required at each stage.
