ACED 205 Aboriginal Governance Development (continued)

Presenting Organization

This course focuses on the twin topics of effective leadership and the role and mandate of the Board of Governors or Tribal Council. This includes balancing the leadership and management needs of an organization and sharing these functions effectively with the board. The governance functions of the mission statement, the role of the board, recruiting and orienting new board members, and board-executive director relations will be critically examined through experiential models and practices. Students will keep a single notebook or binder to hold their written notes and class handouts. This will develop the student's organizational skills and allow them to monitor their own progress in the course. This course is targeted for those who are employed and/or have administrative experience.
