For the first event in our On Board: Boardroom Debates series, we are addressing the question, "do you think nonprofit boards should implement a Chief Governance Officer role? Why or why not?" To participate, please read the assigned article and then submit your opinion by 12/5.


Then, join us live to continue the debate, share your opinion, and hear from fellow Chicago Booth nonprofit board members.
