Morning Session: 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. Tough talk about boards – and making them better
Far too many boards are merely mediocre. (Even those that claim greatness.) Far too few are really good. (Even those with the most sophisticated members.) And far too many are rather dysfunctional. (Not incompetent but…) How’s your board?
Learn (and apply) the right governance stuff. The right stuff does make a difference. Come along for tough talk that improves board member understanding and performance – thus building better boards. (And bring the ED/CEO and some board members along. I’ll tell them the tough stuff so you don’t have to!)
Afternoon Session: 12:30 – 3:30 p.m Board members and fundraising – roles and limitations
The board as a whole doesn’t do much in fundraising. But individual board members can be a big help. Not necessarily lots and lots… But certainly quite a bit. So… What can board members do in fundraising? How will you, the staff, help them do this work? And by the way…who’s in charge?
