About the workshop:
Why is it that some small non-profit boards tend to get mired down in crises and create a feeling of dysfunction? Are these familiar issues for you: lack of fundraising experience or the desire to do so; resistance to change; focusing on the "little" picture and forgetting the big one; or micromanaging staff? Your board members may have the best of intentions, buy you must help them put "FUN" into the board's "Dysfunction". They need guidance in making their volunteer experience even better for themselves and for the organization. This interactive session will allow participants to share their own experiences, hear case studies, and practice various learning tools in creating a positive experience of change for boards in search for that "FUN" or "First-Class Understanding of Non-profits". This session is an excellent experience for executive directors, development professionals, and volunteer board members of small non-profits facing volunteer leadership challenges.
