Boards play an important role in the success of any organization. They move forward an organization’s mission, and they steward the assets and relationships of that organization to keep it out of harm. Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment and other critical issues.
This interactive, virtual workshop will cover board responsibilities, operations, development, fundraising, and advocacy. It is based on the Boards in Gear resources developed in partnership with some of our state’s leading board experts. You will leave with concrete action steps, tools, and connections. Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment and other critical issues.
This workshop is designed for board members and the people who work with them, namely executive directors and program staff. It offers ideas for new board members and those who have served for a long time. It is appropriate for organizations of all sizes, whether they have staff or not.
Following the presentation, you will join other nonprofit professionals in your part of the state for facilitated peer-led conversation. Connect with your nonprofit colleagues virtually to talk about what parts of the Boards in Gear presentation resonated with you, hear about the challenges other nonprofits in your area face, and share in the collective wisdom of the nonprofit sector.
