Your board members are some of your most important stakeholders. They bring valuable expertise and passion for the mission, but they also face time constraints, competing priorities, and varying levels of commitment. Learn how to navigate complex board dynamics and elevate your organization’s board performance through transparent discussion and a toolkit of realistic strategies you can implement each year.
You’ll dive into the nuts and bolts of board engagement—learning practical tips and best practices to:
• Build a supercharged board and why it’s vital to your mission
• Navigate challenging board dynamics
• Lead meetings your board members will want to attend
• Create a consistent framework for board 1:1s to add meaning to board service
• Foster enthusiasm in your board members as ambassadors of your mission
To promote organizational effectiveness and impact, all participants will receive customizable, electronic templates for a board orientation agenda, board meeting agenda, annual board documents, board member 1:1 framework, and board engagement calendar.
Executive directors are encouraged to have their board chairs join them for this session.
