The Basics of Effective Board Governance

The Basics of Effective Board Governance is an online training series that provides information to assist board of directors to understand their roles and responsibilities, accountability, authority and how to conduct effective meetings.

The governing board is the legal entity and authority for licensed not for profit child care centres. It is accountable for the effective management of the centre’s business and for all aspects of the centre’s programs, staff and funds. This training will cover:

  • The basic responsibilities and functions of a board and its members
  • The accountability and authority of the board of directors
  • The elements of an effective meeting

The training series can also serve as a reference document for boards to refer back to when membership changes.

To learn more about the training, please view the Quick Fact Sheet.

Through the Canada-Manitoba Early Learning and Child Care Agreement, boards of directors for licensed not for profit child care centres in Manitoba can access the training at no cost for up to12 registrations.  For centres with affiliated licenses, two registrations will be available for each additional location.

For profit centres and not for profit centres who would like additional registrations can purchase them for $35 per registration.

To register, go to www.mccahouse.org and choose Board Governance from the Professional Development menu.

The Basics of Board Governance, in partnership with Manitoba Child Care Association, is part of Manitoba’s Action Plan, under the Canada-Manitoba Early Learning and Child Care Agreement.
