4th annual Governance Workshop planned for Muskoka Charities & Non-profits

The Muskoka Community Foundation has announced it will host the 4th Annual Governance Workshop for Muskoka Charities and Non-Profits.

The workshops were created to allow board directors and organizational managers to participate in an interactive learning session within Muskoka.

Marg French, Chair of Muskoka Community Foundation says “this workshop offers an economical way for Muskoka charities and non-profits with scarce resources to learn about the most up to date best practices and requirements for boards and managers. In order to respond to an ever-shifting environment that demands increasing accountability and transparency, Muskoka Community Foundation believes providing educational opportunities in good governance and strategic leadership with a focus on financial sustainability is essential for the third sector in Muskoka”.

Don McCreesh will once again facilitate the daylong workshop, bringing with him his vast experience and expertise in the non-profit sector. Mr. McCreesh has provided both consulting and volunteer guidance to many boards and management teams on governance, strategy and organizational issues, while working to improve governance and strategic leadership. He is an active leader in voluntary sector governance with more than three decades experience and is an expert in governance, fundraising, accountability and management standards to Canada’s charitable sector.

This year’s workshop will take place on October 22nd from 8:30 to 4:30pm at the Terry Fox Auditorium at the Centennial Centre in Gravenhurst.
