Conversations Across the Invisible Yellow Line – Board and Staff Roles

If you’ve ever watched a football game on television, you’ve seen the yellow line that appears on the screen, showing the placement of the next down. We can see it, but those on the field cannot. It’s invisible to the players. The same is true in many board and staff relationships. There is a yellow line that defines who does what, but it is invisible. This fast paced webinar will share some of the basic on both sides of the yellow line and suggest ways to make it less ‘invisible’ to the players in a nonprofit.

-Clarification of basic board and staff roles in governance, financial management, human resources, resource development and more.
-Suggestions for effective ways to define roles of board and staff.
