NFP Boards: Responding to Emergent and Post-Pandemic Realities

Good Governance demands that Boards always invest the time and resources to ensure the financial and reputational sustainability of their organizations. The unprecedented challenges imposed and exposed by the Pandemic, as well as increased pressure to ensure the safety of participants, staff and volunteers, have heightened this responsibility. 

Boards are sensing the need to reassess assumptions, revisit operating models and risk mitigation processes, evaluate strategies and launch transformational plans despite ongoing uncertainties. 
Every Board is obligated to ensure that their NFP can sustain the outcomes and impacts embodied in their Mission, Vison, and Values. But the environment has changed dramatically –so, now might be the time to reconsider the fit between the fundamentals and an organization’s legacy operating model and risk mitigation strategies / tactics.

The Panelists will draw on experiences from sectors like Healthcare, Social Services and other NFP communities.
They will explore:
  • What should Boards have on their radar screen
  • What topics now seem most important to sector and organizations
  • How the landscapes of risks, threats and opportunities are evolving, and
  • Given new realities, how Boards can plan, respond, and inspire
This discussion will delve into critical questions like:
  • What are examples of the key Board processes that need to be reconsidered?
  • What funding, technology, and delivery platforms should be explored/withdrawn?
  • What are the key challenges and possible mitigations for talent management?
  • How to monitor trust and sustainability with stakeholders and the community?
