Finding Your Organizational Voice with Advocacy as a Board Leadership Strategy
October 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EDT$35
The evidence is clear: nonprofits that engage in advocacy are more visible, achieve higher impact and generally over time become stronger organizations overall. And boards play a critical role ensuring the organization’s advocacy work is successful and sustainable. Despite the clear benefits, board reluctance to engage in advocacy is a significant deterrent to many nonprofits’ decision to otherwise embrace advocacy as a leadership strategy.
In this engaging webinar, participants will learn the keys to achieving higher and sustained board engagement including the important role of the CEO and how to organize and engage a board to support advocacy. We will look at a case study of Jewish Family Services of San Diego and learn how they transformed their organization through advocacy.
- Identify 3 steps to achieving stronger board engagement
- Discover key qualities and roles to foster in an advocacy board and
- Recognize how to move beyond common barriers that prevent most boards from moving forward.
