In these unprecedented times, board leadership and engagement are more important than ever. To meet the urgent needs of this moment and beyond, nonprofits need boards and executives who are not only fulfilling their legal responsibility but are also demonstrating strong leadership.

This workshop will help nonprofit board members and executives gain greater clarity and understanding of the requirements of and the leadership opportunities for nonprofit boards, what is involved an effective partnership between the board and the nonprofit chief executive, and ways to strengthen their board’s leadership and engagement.

As a result of attending this session, participants will:
-Build a shared understanding and working knowledge of the requirements of and leadership opportunities for nonprofit boards
-Understand how to build a stronger partnership between the chief executive and the board
-Identify new ways to strengthen their board

While this training is open to all, it is designed primarily for nonprofit leaders who are newer to their role.
