Event Details

Being a nonprofit Board Chair is a critical role as well as being challenging to achieve effective leadership. Some folks reluctantly sign on while others have years of experience. Regardless of board tenure, there is always more to learn. 

Emily Davis Consulting has designed a unique peer-learning group specifically designed for board chairs. Join this dynamic cohort to collaborate, learn, and share resources from and with other board chairs to successfully serve your organization's mission. Build vision, strategically guide the organization, and create accountability. Access best practices in board governance and leadership while also hearing stories to help improve your board service.

We want you and your organization set up for success.

The cohort will meet monthly for four months and select topics for discussion such as:

  • Board member roles and responsibilities
  • Understanding shared leadership between board and staff
  • Creating board accountability
  • Managing conflict and handling hard conversations
  • Building healthy board culture
  • Ensuring resources for success
  • Facilitating great meetings
  • Board member recruitment and retention
This program is ideal for current board chairs and incoming board chairs. A minimum of participation in three of the four sessions is required. Light snacks, coffee/tea, and beverages provided. 

Space is limited to 10 participants. Please sign up soon!

We will meet the 3rd Wednesday of every month from February through May 2017.
  • February 15th from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.
  • March 15th from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.
  • April 19th from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.
  • May 17th from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.
Participants of this third peer group will have access to BoardSource resources, the board chair peer group listserv and private Facebook Group. The latter resources allow peer group members to share information and ask advice of current and past peer group participants.

Cohort participants must either be currently serving as the board chair/president of a nonprofit organization or as the incoming chair/president of a nonprofit organization.
