Governance Training for Non-Profits, Workshop, May 8

SASCI is pleased to announce we will be hosting a free Governance capacity-building workshop for non-profit community service organizations in southwest Alberta.  

To present this one day workshop, SASCI has engaged the services of David Hartley, formerly Director of Imagine Canada’s Insurance and Liability Resource Centre for Non-profits.  David has trained over 12,000 leaders in the past 5 ½ years in areas of risk, leadership and governance.  David’s dynamic presentation style and great sense of humour promise a full day of meaningful interaction with participants from small to large non-profits and charities. The agenda includes:


  • Boards:  The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
  • 12 principles of a highly successful non-profit Board
  • Role of the Board vs role of the Executive Director
  • Developing a more engaged Board
  • Board behaviours / dealing with challenging personalities
  • Board recruitment and Board evaluation
  • Legal duties of Boards
  • 4 ways to protect yourself as a Board Member


Registration is free but space is limited.

Please contact us early to reserve a spot.  To reach as broad an audience as possible, we are suggesting participation by Board Members, general members, managers, and other paid staff.  Although the workshop is taking place in Pincher Creek, participants from the entire southwest Alberta region are welcome.  The workshop will run from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on May 8, at the Heritage Inn in Pincher Creek.  Lunch will be provided.

To reserve your spot, please contact David Green at sasci@telus.net or leave a message at 403-627-1750.
