Webinar 101: Broken Engagement: Why Has Our Board Checked Out? How Do We Fix It?
March 15, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Many organizations face the challenge of engaging their board members appropriately in critical areas — from core governance issues to fundraising. The symptoms may be poor meeting and event attendance, missed fundraising goals and opportunities, and/or micromanagement. Frequently, organizations try to address the symptoms without having a deep understanding of the problems and how they can be prevented.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how engagement starts before a board member commits and is a journey that continues even as they leave the board. We will help board and staff leaders understand why board engagement falters at every stage of a board member’s tenure. Participants will be given tools to diagnose what may be affecting engagement for their board, such as recruiting, board structure, meetings, or culture. Then we will explore the key elements of a highly engaged and effective board and how to maintain it through an organization’s lifecycle.
