Policy Development and Board Governance
The ability of leaders to effectively govern is a critical determinant of whether the organization can effectively and sustainably achieve its mission.
This underscores the importance of Boards and Councils to fully understand their roles and responsibilities in terms of fiduciary duties, and how to build or leverage the expertise, networks and passion of the members sitting around the table to ensure that the organization’s impact is well articulated and measured.
A long-time senior advisor and former director of policy and planning, Travis also has extensive policy development experience in all levels of government and for the NGO sector, and across a wide array of topics and themes.
