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
