Last month June Holley presented on the importance of Network Governance and Structures. We were introduced to a plethora of examples, but did not have much time to dig into some of the models. Join us on December 6th for 90 minutes of hands-on virtual practice where you will be able to talk and get ideas from other networks. June with be accompanied by Tracy Kunkler of Circle Forward Partners and Steve Waddell, who will share some resources about governance models and processes for networks.

 

Many networks organize governance and operations with structures that mirror those of organizations:  governing boards, committees, and operations staff. Unfortunately, these structures have often been a bad fit with networks, leading to decreased involvement and engagement by network  participants who aren't on the governing board and shrinking network size and impact.

 

More and more networks are experimenting with and co-creating innovative network governance and structures that are self-organizing, encouraging and supporting the formation of collaborative circles for many or all of the operations and coordination functions of the network.

 

June Holley will share examples and offer several checklists and strategy worksheets to help your network determine if these new structures might be appropriate for them.
