Nonprofit governance and leadership aren’t easy and building a strong nonprofit board can be difficult, especially if you’re a small organization. It entails being knowledgeable about a wide range of topics that are unique to nonprofits and exclusive to board service. A well-functioning board is essential to a thriving nonprofit. But board development is often treated as an afterthought. Your organization’s board of directors are your standard bearers, foundation builders, and strategic planners. They are the public face of your organization and act as your chief cheerleaders and fundraisers. The board is also responsible for steering the organization towards meeting its mission and ensuring its financial stability. At many small, volunteer-led associations, clubs and nonprofits, the board may also be responsible for day-to-day operations. Be sure to build your board with the right tasks in mind.
How big should the board be? What are the ideal traits of a board member? How much training is needed? How much time should board members expect to spend on fundraising activities?
This webinar provides easy to understand concepts and practical strategies to walk organizations through strategic and effective board member recruitment and engagement. Participants will learn to how to assess current board member representation, develop recruitment strategies to address diversity and industry gaps, set clear and measurable fundraising expectations, and design step-by-step nomination and new board member orientation practices.
