Webinar: USA Triathlon's Women In Leadership Webinar Series Part 2
Topic: USA Triathlon's Women In Leadership Webinar Series: Part 2: Governance 101
Many women don’t feel confident that they “know” what they need to know in order to serve on a board or chair a committee. The next webinar will provide governance education and will focus on the duties of care, loyalty and obedience which are the legal responsibilities of board service.
Serving in a leadership role requires one important characteristic — a commitment to serve with the mission in mind. Women tend to feel strongly about things that resonate with their core values. Serving in a leadership position because you want to make a difference or improve the sport or organization makes you qualified. Receiving training in governance will make you capable of serving.
Getting involved in governance at the local, regional and national level is an important step. We need qualified and capable women to step up to leadership at all levels of USA Triathlon. Please join us while we study the responsibilities of board service along with reviewing nonprofit best practices. Rose Snyder will increase your awareness and prepare you to step up to leadership with knowledge and confidence.
Please be aware that no CEUs will be available for this webinar.
Rose is a nonprofit governance consultant and has worked with USA Triathlon since 2006. She has facilitated board governance training and strategic planning for USAT and dozens of other national sports organization. Rose also hosts an annual Women's Retreat designed to promote personal and professional development for women in sport.
