Induction Workshops for NGO Directors

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