ONLINE: Getting the Most Out of Your Board

Whenever your board members gather for a meeting, there’s a lot of wisdom and passion in the room.  Are you getting maximum value out of that precious time?

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 lively webinar 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!  Join us!
