The Board has many duties it has to complete: strategic planning, compensating and evaluating staff; raising funds for the organization; approving the annual work plan and budget; overseeing the financial health of the organization and the annual audit; and evaluating the organization’s program activities. Most Boards cannot do all this work and do it well during a normal Board meeting. That is why it is important to have well-functioning committees to assist the Board with its work.

The D.C. Nonprofit Code and the IRS have rules which govern the work of the committees – what duties committees can legally take on and how they must function. It is important that you know what those rules are. So join us for a webinar on understanding the role of Board committees and how they operate.
