Onboarding and Educating: The Care and Feeding of New Directors

Did you know that new directors have no defence to ‘plead ignorance’ when they join a board?  New directors need to be in a position to ‘hit the ground running’. This session will explore what it means to ensure a new director is ready to fulfill his or her fiduciary duty and duty of care from the first board meeting.  Tips and tools for on-boarding and providing ongoing training and education for your new board members will be discussed, including what and who to include in an orientation session, what to include in a director’s manual, and tips for helping the new director feel confident in his/her new role.
