*this is a two part workshop held online via Zoom, three hours each session to complete class, March 22 & 23; 9:30am – 12:30 pm. Click here to register.

Class description: An organization’s purpose is its reason for existing. Strong Board Development is essential to create a firm foundation to move the organization closer to actualizing its mission. Effective Boards are made up of passionate individuals that are clear on their roles and their reasons for being on the Board. This course will explore ways to engage, retain, and motivate your Board by exploring the following:

  • The difference between Board Development and Nominating
  • The definition of Board Development
  • Who’s responsible for developing the Board
  • A year in the life of the Board Development Committee

Join Former Executive Director and Board Member Allison Jordan to learn the Board Building Cycle, how to be intentional about bringing on new board members that are clear about their purpose, and how to keep them engaged once they are on the Board.
