ARNOVA Upcoming Activities

Friday, November 17, 3:45 to 5:15 PM, Haldane

Title: Governance Section Colloquy: Myth Busters
Presenters: Will Brown, Chao Guo, Ruth McCambridge, Beth Gazley, David O. Renz
Chairs: Fredrik O. Andersson, Paloma Raggo
Several myths and urban legends about nonprofit governance withstand the test of time, which ones are founded or should be debunked? This Colloquy is composed of five lightning research presentations that will highlight their empirical research in no more than 5 minutes using 5 slides. Highly interactive, this Colloquy seeks to challenge common wisdoms and generate a lively discussion with the audience and the panel's governance experts regarding key issues in the nonprofit governance field.

Title: Activist Boards? Promoting Organizational Values, Beliefs, and Goals
Saturday, November 18, 12:15-3:30, TBD.

The Governance section is planning a half-day of activities that will actively engage ARNOVA members in conversation, debate, and thoughtful analysis of how nonprofit boards “go outside” the organization to leverage the important work of their organizations through advocacy. Listen as ARNOVA members and invited guests debate the Johnson Amendment and talk with CEOs whose organizations have benefited greatly through board advocacy efforts. Participants will even have the opportunity to think through four compelling cases that examine the board’s role in creating the circumstances under which the organization’s shared values and beliefs are turned into actions so that the mission is achieved.
