Event Details

Building a High Performing Board

Does your board have a hard time seeing the forest for the trees? Do you feel like you’re discussing committee-level work rather than governance-level work in the board room? Are you interested in helping your nonprofit board improve? “Building a High Performing Board” will help you to create clear expectations for board members, to make sure that board members enjoy their service and find it rewarding, and ensure that time spent together in the board room is time well spent.

You will learn:

  • How to use tools like job descriptions, a board matrix, and a board orientation process to ensure that you select, recruit, train, and retain high-impact board members,
  • How boards should best utilize their time at board meetings,
  • How to prevent boards from losing direction.

Both board members and executive directors will find this workshop useful.
