Sandi L. Humphrey, CAE, served as a not-for-profit executive for over twenty years, twelve of which were as Executive Director of the Ontario and Canadian Associations of Police Services Boards. During that time, the pursuit of board effectiveness occupied a significant amount of Sandi’s time, as police board members relied on their association to provide information and training to help them govern their local police services.
For the past fifteen years, Sandi has provided consulting services to the association and not-for-profit community, with a particular emphasis on board governance, volunteer management, association structure and accountability.
Many of you may know Sandi as an instructor in CSAE’s Certified Association Executive (CAE®) program, or as editor of CSAE’s Association magazine. She is co-author of Best Practices and Tools for Not-for-Profit Boards, the Guide to Positive Staff-Board Relations for Directors of Not-for-Profit Organizations, Guide to Effective Committees for Not-for-Profit Organizations, and Canadian Association Management, the definitive source of information on leadership, latest developments and best practices in the not-for-profit sector.
CSAE has recently published two new books by Sandi that are directly related to the subject matter covered in this session: Making Your Mark as a Not-for-Profit Board Member: An Orientation Guide for New Board Members, and, Making an Impact as a Not-for-Profit Board Chair.
