Are you certain your Board is making a real difference and contribution to your organization?While many Boards talk about conducting regular governance evaluations, few Boards actually do. Even fewer Boards conduct performance evaluations of individual Directors. As Boards come under increasing pressure to be accountable for how well they govern, evaluating Board and Director performance has become an essential component of good governance. Workshop OverviewThis interactive workshop will provide insight on how your Board can successfully approach this challenging aspect of governance, by examining how to develop a Board assessment framework and sharing key evaluation practices: How should your Board measure “success”? Why even bother evaluating the Board? The “How-To” and the “What” of evaluations, Overcoming resistance to peer assessments; Non-performing Directors and dysfunctional dynamics; Impact on governance.   About the Facilitators Maria Capozzi, MPA, CGAP, ICD.DDirector, Corporate GovernanceOffice of the Auditor General (Manitoba)Maria has been with the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) since 1998, and has extensive experience in conducting governance assessments and audits of public sector Boards of Directors.
