COLVILLE: Getting the Most Out of Your Board

Getting the Most Out of Your Board
Wednesday, March 14, 2018

12:30pm - 4:00pm

WSU Stevens County Extension

Colville, WA

Cost: Free

Presenter: Gabriel Cruden, Connections Consulting


Whether you’re an all-volunteer organization or a major institution, you can get more out of your board members – as leaders, ambassadors, and fundraisers – if you use meeting time more strategically. You’ll leave this session with practical, no-cost tips for getting your trustees fired up at the meetings and doing more between meetings.

  • We’ll explore how to:
  • Focus your agendas on the most important topics;
  • Engage everyone in the conversations (not just the usual suspects); and
  • Make real progress, including clear next steps for leaders to commit to.

Your board will take more ownership of the organization’s mission and goals when you employ these clear, research-based concepts, and they’ll have more fun too!



Can't make it to the workshop? Join us in Ferry or Stevens counties!

Each session will include training video viewings, facilitated discussions, and organizational/project work time. There will also be opportunities to network and to learn about additional resources available to you and your organization.
