Bobbie Good is
a graduate of Humboldt State University’s Masters of Social Work Program as of
May 2015. She has a strong passion for board governance and has been involved
with both nonprofit and for profit boards. Her involvement started 17 years ago
when she was a student representative on a nonprofit board and today she serves
on the board of the Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction.
Masters Project was to create a guide and templates for use by local nonprofit
boards to assist them with the creation and modification of their own board
tools including manuals, bylaws, and orientations. One of her mentors for this
project was Byrd Lochtie, facilitator of NorCAN’s Board Leadership Roundtables,
with whom she co-facilitated the May 2015 roundtable where she presented her
project to a group of 22 nonprofit board members.
