Induction Workshops for NGO Directors 2019

NGO directors are shouldering increasing responsibilities owing to the more complex social service needs and monitoring by different stakeholders. Board members from diverse professional areas and backgrounds should primarily get themselves familiar with the structure and operation after joining an organization so as to make optimal decisions for the benefit of the agency they serve. Co-organized with Governance and Management Excellence for Public Benefit (GAME) again, the workshops comprising two sessions aims to equip new directors and committee members with better understanding of the sector and their roles and responsibilities as NGO governors.
