Common Good VT is pleased to share this webinar hosted by Iowa Nonprofit Alliance. Please email [email protected] with questions.

This session is intended for leaders of emerging and established organizations who wish to explore how the myriad structures within their organizations impact its leadership in terms of governance, administration, and direct service or product delivery.

Oftentimes the word  “structure” itself conveys a sense of permanence or rigidity. Structures can be passed on from one generation of board and staff leaders to the next. While organizations routinely engage in strategic planning, we rarely hear about the need for structural planning.

This fun, fast-paced, session is designed to raise our awareness and knowledge of our organizational structures, as well as engage participants in reimagining the structures that best serve the purposes of their organizations.
