This course will prepare you to lead a non-profit organization in Canada. We’ll explore a variety of issues you and your board will face, including the legal foundations, the unique governance and human systems, and the resource requirements of this special entity we call a non-profit.
We will also look at best practices and trends in communications, fund development and risk management. Our starting point will be to explore the key elements that make a successful non-profit.
The course is designed to integrate practical learning into theoretical discussion and is based on the assumption that you are an expert who brings something to the table that all of us can learn from – whether that is experience in the field, or life experience others don’t share.
Coursework will consist of reading, self-reflection, interacting with your peers and instructors, and pursuing a case study of your choice.
