“The role of the National Boards, a story of oversight and leadership”

Descriptions

You know how it is to be a leader in Scouting, you are now on the national board and unsure how to shift from being a successful leader on a regional level to being a good board member for a national organisation? Come to this session to find out more about the responsibilities of the national board in Scout and Guide organisations and its individual members. Learn how to be effective and how this role differs from the leadership role of your national executive and your staff. We will present you an overview of different aspects to consider, in order to give you the full picture. After three hours you will be able to identify those areas that are most important for you and that you might need more training in. Maybe you find out what session to attend next? This session is the first step in a series of two sessions.


FOR THIS SESSION PLEASE BRING ORGANIZATIONAL CHARTS AND STATUTES / CONSTITUTIONS FROM YOUR NSO/NSA/MO.
