The ABCs of Building Better Boards - Strategies for Building an Effective Nonprofit Board of Directors

What does your nonprofit need to advance its mission? Learn how to find the right board members for your nonprofit.Nonprofit organizations large and small are facing more and more challenges as they strive to serve their important missions. Because of these challenges, it is more important than ever that board members understand their roles and responsibilities to the organizations they govern. Nonprofit staff leaders must also be clear about the roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit board so they can lead the way to more effective board management, since, in essence, most nonprofit boards change their leadership every year. This fast-paced topic will provide practical tools that apply to effective nonprofit boards, regardless of the size of the organization – the tools for getting and keeping effective board members are the same for all. The material is presented by a nationally recognized trainer, consultant and author with more than 50 years of experience as both staff and volunteer leader of local, regional and national nonprofits.
