Breakfast Seminar: Directors Dilemma – Working Together on a Board Challenge (Vancouver Session)

This event is sold out. To be added to the waitlist, please email

Sometimes there is no checklist. Boards deal with ambiguity because many governance challenges require judgement rather than mere compliance to detailed regulations. When faced with “director dilemmas,” definitive information may not always be available, and a distinct course of action may not always be clear. Learn from your peers and experienced board members as you tackle, discuss options and work through real-world boardroom challenges.

Join us at this interactive event focused on the difficult issues that sometimes confront boards. Using a case study approach, participants will be asked to act as a special committee of the Board of Directors of a non-profit organization in Canada. Through a series of questions, attendees, with the support of an experienced director at each table, will deliberate on options and discuss possible actions the board could take to avert a crisis.

The session will be guided by a moderator who will take participants through the peer-to-peer discussions and will also provide additional insights on the issues raised in the case study and, more generally, on the board’s role. 


The structure of the session will be in working groups of 8, therefore, registration is limited. Early registration is encouraged.
