Board Governance Boot Camp — Strategic Board Development
May 19, 2021, 9:00-10:30am ($150 for CVNL members, $200 for non-members)
This series is ideal for nonprofit Executive Directors/CEOs and nonprofit board members. Board chairs and those serving in an officer position, or are thinking of doing so, will find the sessions particularly useful.
Strong, smart boards are critical to the health of your nonprofit organization. Despite their passion, nonprofit board members don’t always come to the job with experience in things like nonprofit fundraising or governance. Our three-part series on board governance, led by Linda Jacobs, CEO of CVNL, helps organizations diagnose their boards’ needs and equip their board members with the right training and resources to take their leadership to the next level. From building a board to performance metrics, these sessions aim to maximize the engagement of your nonprofit’s biggest advocates and allies.
Board governance practices are divided into the following 3 sessions: Fundamentals, Structure, and Development.
Session 3 on Strategic Board Development is the final course of our three-part series, but if you're just joining, welcome! Each session stands on its own. Given the tremendous responsibility and decision-making power of boards, and the length of most board members’ tenures, making sure you have the right composition of leaders on your board is essential. In this session, we will look at ways nonprofits can “get the right people around the table” and keep them engaged through ongoing development and evaluation.
Specific topics will include:
- The Board building cycle
- Identify needs
- Cultivate leaders
- Board member orientation
- Training and development
- Evaluating board performance – key metrics and dashboards
