Event Details

SVP has launched a series of intimate Jeffersonian Dinners to build stronger bonds between SVP Partners and stimulate thinking around philanthropy in a different way. 

The topic for this dinner will focus on the relationship between non-profit Executive Directors and Board Chairs, and questions you might consider as you reflect on this topic include:

  • What have been the key factors in successful relationships between the Board Chair and Executive Director?
  • What are the most common dynamics and pitfalls you’ve experienced in kicking off a new relationship?What is your biggest challenge in working with the Board Chair / Executive Director
    •   How have you successfully navigated them – or what have you learned from unsuccessful relationships?
  • What is the role of the Board Chair?
  • What is the role of the Executive Director?
  • What advice would you give a new Board Chair in helping them create a good relationship with his/her Executive Director?
  • What advice would you give a new Executive Director in helping them create a good relationship with his/her Board Chair?

Partners attending will be current and past board chairs and experienced board members, as well as non-profit leaders, and we’ll provide bios in advance of the dinner.

As you may know, Jeffersonian Dinners are small group discussions of 8-12 people held over a delicious meal. They are generally focused on a specific topic and lightly moderated to be inclusive of all the attendees and their ideas.

Drinks and informal chatting will begin at 6:30 with the dinner and discussion beginning around 7pm. We will aim to wrap up the dinner around 9:30pm. 

Please note that this event is only open to SVP Partners.
