Council and Board of Governance Development from an Aboriginal Perspective
This program will examine the issues surrounding the business of governing an Aboriginal community or organization. It will show you how to structure and manage your governing board, council or committee for maximum efficiency and effectiveness, and will help you improve your governing body's decision making. After attending this program, you will be able to develop a board, council or committee that is more accountable to your community or organization. This is something that is more important today than ever before as Aboriginal leaders are being faced with such crucial issues as self-governance, accelerated change within their organizations, land claims agreements, the dismantling of the Department of Indian Affairs Canada and the increased involvement of the Provinces in Aboriginal affairs. Whether your organization is involved in Tribal, Metis or Inuit affairs, economic or social development, and/or profit or not-for-profit enterprises, you will benefit greatly from this program.
