Binghamton University's College of Community and Public Affairs offers seminar on board governance and leadership


BINGHAMTON, NY – As part of its Spring Seminar Series, Binghamton University’s College of Community and Public Affairs will host "Nonprofit Governance as Leadership," from 3-5 p.m. Thursday, May 8, at the University Downtown Center, 67 Washington Street, Binghamton.

This workshop will cover evolving ideas about how boards can work in collaboration with the professional staff of their organizations to ensure these two groups work effectively together in an effort to lead the organization.

This workshop is for executive directors and board members who have experience in governance but are considering how to strengthen the board and leverage its strengths to advance the mission of their organization. Many of the ideas in this workshop were borrowed from the book, Governance as Leadership, by Richard Chait, William Ryan and Barbara Taylor.

David Campbell, associate professor and chair of the Department of Public Administration, will conduct the seminar. Campbell teaches classes in nonprofit management and leadership as well as philanthropy, and has held leadership positions in nonprofit organizations in New York and Cleveland. He currently serves on the board of the United Way of New York State and recently completed a term as board chair of the Family & Children’s Service of Ithaca.

The cost of the seminar is $25. Registration is required and seating is limited. To register, visit For questions, contact Joann Lindstrom at or 607-777-9178.
