SYN - So, You Want To Be A Non-Profit Director

SYN - So, You Want To Be A Non-Profit Director
It is one thing to be a director in a for-profit organisation, it is very different being a director of a nonprofit organization or charity. The majority of board members for non-profit organisations serve as volunteers without compensation. Notwithstanding this, they are fiduciaries who steer the organisation towards a sustainable future by adopting sound governance and financial management policies.

This introduction session is an engaging one. You will come up close and personal with those who are directors and deeply involved in the non-profit sector. The session will cover essential aspects of:

  • The directorship landscape
  • Director’s duties, responsibilities, liabilities and benefits
  • The director's journey

So, if you have the desire of serving on a board of a nonprofit organization or have just started serving on one, this course would be a good one to give you the insights on the workings, risks and value of the non-profit sector.

Taking only two hours, this touch-and-go session provides a broad roadmap for participants to digest as they consider the important role of a nonprofit director. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the macro view of the directorship landscape in Singapore, especially as it relates to nonprofit organisations.
  • Identify the range of duties, responsibilities, liabilities and benefits of being a non-profit director.
  • Appreciate the key differences between a commercial and a nonprofit board.
  • Make an informed decision before joining a charity board.
  • Understand the next steps in their directorship journey.
