Event description
Join The Arts Partnership for this virtual, four-part Board Leadership Academy to prepare to effectively serve on an arts nonprofit Board.

About this Event

The Arts Partnership is thrilled to launch the virtual, four-part Board Leadership Academy: Building the Next Generation of Community Leaders Series, starting in March 2021. This is an exciting professional development opportunity for executive and upper-management employees across the Metro funded in part by a grant from the Consensus Council and sponsorship dollars from Bell Bank.

Asked about why they chose to support the Board Leadership Academy, Julie Peterson Klein, EVP and Chief Culture Officer from Bell Bank says:

Building our next generation of leaders and preparing them to serve on the boards of arts and nonprofit organizations is so important for the entire business community. When we listen, plan and work together as people, businesses and organizations, we continue to improve and build the kind of community we all want to live in. When business leaders work with arts and nonprofit boards, the value returns to the business and our community many times over.

The Forbes article "Nonprofit Board Service Builds More Effective Business Leaders," reports the positive findings of a study of 1,500+ employees. The report “urges more companies to engage employees on nonprofit boards in order to accelerate progress in building more diverse, inclusive and high-performing workforces, which will have the added benefit of improving employees’ impression of their company and serving as an important factor in their desire to stay with their company.”

You can see that what is a win for the nonprofit sector is actually a win for you and your business, too.

The Arts Partnership is working with consultant Russ White of St Louis , MO, to lead four, 90-minute virtual sessions around these topics:

March 11 8-9:30am: Show up, Do the Reading, Ask Good Questions: How to Make a Difference on a Nonprofit Board

March 18 8-9:30am: Align: How the Board Sets Direction for Itself & Our Organization

April 15 8-9:30am: Equip: How the Board Ensures Our Organization has the Resources it Needs

May 20 8-9:30am: Grow: How the Board Enhances its Capacity and Performance

These sessions are an excellent opportunity for participants to:

• Explore the arts sector

• Ask questions and learn more about the expectations and opportunities of Board service

• Network with other business and arts leaders in the Metro through meaningful breakout sessions and small group conversations

*All of this is available for only $100/employee for the entire series!

Please identify your key leaders/ top employees and sign them up for this valuable professional development opportunity to deepen their investment in the community and volunteer in this meaningful way.

For questions, contact TAP President & CEO Dayna Del Val at 701.866.2488 | dayna@theartspartnership.net.

*Participants who complete all four sessions will be awarded a Certificate of Completion by The Arts Partnership. This will indicate to Nonprofit Board leadership across the Metro that these are excellent candidates for Board service.
