LLC Webinar | Network Structures: Innovative Governance and Decision-Making with June Holley

 

Many networks organize governance and operations with structures that mirror those of organizations:  governing boards, committees, and operations staff. Unfortunately, these structures have often been a bad fit with networks, leading to decreased involvement and engagement by network  participants who aren't on the governing board and shrinking network size and impact.

 

More and more networks are experimenting with and co-creating innovative network governance and structures that are self-organizing, encouraging and supporting the formation of collaborative circles for many or all of the operations and coordination functions of the network.

 

June Holley will share examples and offer several checklists and strategy worksheets to help your network determine if these new structures might be appropriate for them.

June Holley

June has been weaving economic and community networks for more than 25 years. In 1981 she discovered complexity science and became intrigued with the process of transformation. How could communities change in ways that would make them good places for everyone?

With others in Appalachian Ohio, she catalyzed cascades of experimentation, observing and documenting the dynamics that enabled many hundreds of people to start and then expand businesses. With these entrepreneurs, she mobilized dozens of area organizations to collaborate, self-organize and create an environment that would help these businesses innovate and work together.
