Additional Training and Resources
This module was designed to assist individuals with no, or little, board governance experience or those who are working with boards that have gotten a little off track. Each section provides activities and resources that will hopefully provide direction, but may also point to areas that need work. It may seem overwhelming to do all the things suggested in each section, and at the end of the day the reality is that not everything is possible, especially all at once. Sometimes boards experience dysfunction but don't recognize the warning signs. Going through several of the exercises in this module, particularly those in the Governance Structure and Evaluation sections, can highlight areas that boards need to work on to avoid a full-blown crisis.
Your work doesn't have to end with this self-study training module. People who are interested in further training and resources on building organizational capacity in board governance have limitless options. Not only are there other online training courses and resources on the topic, but the issue is a topic of conversation in the newest wave of technology and networking. That's right....you can now follow governance topics on popular social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter! There are podcasts, wikis and webinars. There are also opportunities to receive free or nominal cost subscriptions to online newsletters. In short, you can find a wealth of valuable information with a click of your mouse whenever you need it.
