20 Questions Directors of Nonprofits Should Ask about HR

March 22, 2011

Join us for an hrcouncil.ca LIVE Conversation on March 31, 2011

The board’s responsibility for the stewardship of human resources is a key part of its mandate. Employees, volunteers, consultants and other service providers make up the “human capital” of an organization, and represent its greatest asset and may also represent one of the greatest areas of risk.

The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA) recently published “20 Questions Directors of Not-for-Profit Organizations should ask about Human Resources,” a free resource that has been endorsed by the HR Council for the Nonprofit Sector and is available here and in our HR Toolkit and on the CA’s website.

Have you considered:

  • What is the board’s responsibility for managing and supporting the Executive Director?
  • How does the board oversee the organization’s human resources strategy and policies?
  • What should the board of directors know about terminating employment relationships?

We’d like to invite you to join us for an hrcouncil.ca Live Conversation at 1 p.m. EDT on March 31, 2011 to explore some of these questions in greater detail with Beth Deazeley, LL. B., from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, and Amanda Hudson, CHRP, GPHR, the HR Council’s HR Advisor.

Bring your thoughts, ideas and questions. We look forward to a great conversation.
