About this event
A strong, high performing board of directors is the lynchpin to nonprofit success. When board members don’t understand or don’t embrace their role in stewarding and protecting the organization and its mission, organizations flounder and sometimes fail. This workshop will explore best practices in board development with a keen eye on heightening performance and encouraging a culture of curiosity and inquiry in the boardroom. Attendees will learn how to assess current board functioning, identify board development needs and chart the future course with a documented board development plan.
