Event description

Description

The relationships between the board and ED/staff can make or break an organization, and get in the way of working together toward your mission. Thankfully there are best practices, strategies, and approaches to help you embrace “productive friction” and ensure that all thrive. In this workshop you’ll learn to:

  • Understand the difference between governance and support roles
  • Develop a toolkit to help you improve and refine relationships
  • “Stay in your lane” to ensure your work culture remains productive

Trainer: Mike Westby has been advising boards for over 20 years, as an organization -based consultant and as the President/CEO of Westby Associates, which focuses on board development, strategic planning and fundraising. He has delivered board development workshops for dozens of nonprofits and public agencies. In addition, Mike has delivered keynotes and/or work sessions on board development for the Idaho Nonprofit Center Annual Conference, the Southwest Washington Nonprofit Network Annual Conference, the Pacific Continental Nonprofit Workshop and others. He authored a commended monthly advice column in the Washington Development Officer’s Association trade journal.
