D. Board Members are Leaders Too: How to Build a Better Board

Members of a nonprofit organization’s board of directors have a choice. They can be passive boosters of the organization’s mission or organizational leaders who provide vital support to help the organization achieve that mission. This session will help you steer your board toward the second option. Presenters will show you how to unlock the power that comes with having a board of directors that is committed to your organization’s mission, aligned with management, and prepared to fulfill its separate and distinct role in the organization’s hierarchy. You’ll leave this session with a new appreciation for the importance of recruiting the best board candidates and helping them become fully engaged and empowered.
