Roles: Being a Board Chair

May 22, 2014
2:30 – 3:30 pm ET

Featuring PFC members Lyn Baptist, J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, and Sue Killam, The Windsor Foundation

Are you stepping into or already playing the demanding role of a private foundation board chair? This is a role for which there is little training beyond the basics of charitable governance. In this webinar, some experienced private foundation board chairs offer their unique perspective and lessons learned on the challenges of chairing a foundation, whether dealing with family dynamics or achieving more strategic focus.

This is the second in our new webinar series exploring philanthropic “roles”.

This webinar is being offered to PFC members exclusively.

Please note the change in timing for this webinar from our usual offerings. We will begin promptly at 2:30pm ET for one hour only.

Resources for this webinar are available in the member area under Practices and Tools / Boards and Succession.
