NPO Series: That’s Board, not Bored! – Building Your Greatest Resource!
Sep 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am EDT
Start-up and Small Non-Profits: How to Stand Tall When you are Quite Small
Smaller and new non-profits share a few common challenges: how to build a great board that adds value, how to raise gifts, how to get the community to be aware of you so they invest in your mission and how to build strong partnerships that help you leverage other community resources. This mini-series of three, 2-hour sessions will provide executive directors and board members with a wealth of information, tips and tools to address these questions.
That’s Board, not Bored! – Building Your Greatest Resource!
This session will provide an overview of what it takes to create and build a dynamic, active and invested board. Boards are one of the most critical assets a non-profit has, yet few boards have the impact they could. With a few tools and a consistent, strategic approach to building your board, you will impact more people, get more gifts and attract more resources than you could without a strong board. Among the areas covered in this session:
What a strong board looks like for your organization
Identify the kinds of skills you need on your board now and why
Creating an environment that will allow your volunteer leaders to thrive
Building expectations of each other: the staff/volunteer partnership
* We’ll only hold the workshops if eight or more people are registered.
Presented by Maryann LaCroix Lindberg, CFRE and President of the Philanthropy Resource Group, each session will be interactive and packed with lots of information for you to use right away. Maryann has worked with more than 80 non-profits over the course of her career, and is known for her practical and engaging presentation.
