    Are the right people sitting around your board table? Is your board inclusive of the community you serve? Are your board meetings inclusive of all voices around the table?

    Increasingly, nonprofit organizations are recognizing the need to become more inclusive of diversity in order to meet the needs of the communities they serve and achieve their missions. In this session we will explore key trends illustrating the nonprofit landscape relative to diversity and inclusion and interactively examine practical strategies and tools to advance social equity around the board table. 

    Appropriate for current and incoming board members and nonprofit professionals.

    Leading a nonprofit board requires more than just following an agenda. It is important for the Board Chair to provide mission driven direction and leadership. Many times when Board Chairs are elected, they are not given the directions needed to guide their nonprofit organizations.  This workshop will help you understand the  role and responsibilities of Board Chairs and how they may better perform their duties. 

     

    Appropriate for current and incoming board chairs and nonprofit professionals.

    This webinar is the third of a three-part series of monthly webinars called Building a Strong Board.


    Parts 1 and 2 available now on-demand.

    Part 1: Recruitment & Orientation

    Part 2: Culture


    The structure of a board plays a critical role in allowing an organization to grow.  Is your structure an intentional, well-planned element?


    Here are some questions to consider:

    • Do your committees serve their purpose? Do they have the right people on them?
    • Do your policies and procedures help your board make decisions?
    • Do your bylaws enhance your board or do they tie your hands?

    If you are stuck in "today," then your board cannot plan for tomorrow.  Structure allows you to be the board that your organization needs.


    This webinar will explore the following:

    • Committee management
    • How to critically review bylaws, policies and procedures
    • Holding yourself accountable to processes
    • Strategic Planning Conversations
    • Succession Planning


    Appropriate for current and incoming board members and nonprofit professionals.
