So, You Want Your Board To Do Something? (or) Is Osmosis Overrated

 Registration is closed for this event
Nobody joins a board because they want to “mess things up.” People join because they believe in and want to help advance the mission of the organization. Unfortunately, not all organizations know how to effectively marshal the resources of the board. Join UNA and Fund Raising Counsel to learn about best practices for partnering with your board on your organization's fundraising efforts.

This session, intended for chief staff officers (CEOs/Executive Directors) of nonprofit organizations, will lead participants through a ten-question organizational self-assessment to identify strengths and opportunities for improving board effectiveness. The session will also provide specific strategies that can be utilized to improve board operations to better support the organization.

Join us for this engaging session and learn how to effectively work with your board and leverage their strengths to best support your organization.
