Webinar 201: Building and Maintaining an Enthusiastic Board
February 28, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
“What is the link between nonprofit boards and sustainability?” you might ask. The answer is leadership. Leadership isn’t simply something an organization comes by, nor is it a static quality that once developed stays forever. Leadership is a resource in need of development, management, and a clear picture of drivers and motivators. The best boards look to the future and develop leadership as a sustainable resource. Doing so ensures that the board continuously adds qualified new members to its roster and keeps them engaged. Board building shouldn’t just happen when it is time to fill a vacancy; it should be an ongoing, year-round process.
Applying rules of sustainability to the topic of board development, this webinar guides participants through a process that focuses on the different steps needed to build an effective board that is sustainable over the long term. Understanding these steps can help boards avoid the common ups and downs of building and maintaining an enthusiastic board.
