Event Details


The nonprofit governing board has been described, wryly, as an ineffective group of effective people. Trustees are recruited for their stature, skills or connections, and then are not engaged in a way that optimizes their potential contribution. This webinar will offer a range of concepts and tools for effective recruitment, orientation, stewardship, guidance and leadership development.

Part of the Wednesday Webinar series for nonprofit staff and board development. Offering strategy, planning, organizational development, branding, marketing, executive search, finance, fundraising, operations, and more.
