The following will be explored in a workshop with your board of directors and not-for-profit members:
- Roles and Responsibilities of the Board

- The 7 Key Elements of Good Governance
- Deb will give an overview of seven things that every board needs to have in place in order to govern properly.
- Tips and Resources
Throughout the workshop, Deb refers to practical templates, exercises, and examples that she has created in her 35+ years of board experience.
Deb has studied board governance for over twenty years, primarily through The Governance Group based in Vancouver. She has served on many boards, including national and provincial boards, for over thirty-five years.
Deb also worked at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce for nineteen years, supporting her board of directors as they transitioned to a solid governance model.
Within all these experiences, Deb came to realize that governance, when done right, could be fun and easy. That is why she has developed governance workshops,
including a streamlined strategic planning process, that are highly effective, engaging and inspiring. Deb has been recognized as Executive of the Year and Chamber of the Year
by her provincial network and Executive of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada. Most recently, she was appointed to the Council of Excellence by
a panel of her peers across the country and appointed as a Fellow of the BC Chamber of Commerce.
