Advancing Exemplary Governance
Louis J. Mezzina, CPA
There is a great deal of literature focused on not-for-profit governance, from basic responsibilities to best practices. However, governance remains one of the most challenging areas to manage. However, there are exceptional boards that oversee correctly and are valuable strategic assets of their organizations. This session will provide steps any organization can take to improve performance.
