WORKSHOP: Risk Management and Non Profit Boards (2/23/17)
Managing risk makes nonprofits healthier, stronger and better able to meet their mission. Taking positive risks fuels growth and innovation. Reducing or eliminating negative risks prevents loss or harm and ultimately strengthens infrastructure and systems. As risk management becomes the subject of greater focus in NYC, Boards need to be able to understand it, identify what their nonprofit is doing now and imagine ways to expand risk management to better meet their organization’s needs.
