Description

Check-in starts at noon

Program begins promptly at 12:30

Professional Development Organization Leaders—Does this look like your team?

  • Your board meetings are a painful recitation of excuses and dull reports!
  • Your great processes are greatly ignored!
  • Your strategic planning offsites turn into an annual airing of greivances!

Then come and work with leadership consultant Amy Nisenson along with your peers for a workshop on Great Boards/Great Meetings for Professional Development Organizations!

We recommend that you and one or two fellow board members attend this workshop. Participants will:

  • Gain insight and practical experience in board meeting planning, agenda setting, communications, execution and documentation.

  • Gather strategies and techniques to keep your board engaged.

  • Learn when you should—and should not—hold a board retreat.

  • Understand special considerations for board retreats such as ice-breakers, logistics, facilitation, agenda flexibility and follow-up.



Facilitator: Amy Nisenson's consulting expertise includes strategic planning, board development/governance work, board and staff meeting facilitation, organizational development, succession planning, executive search and CEO evaluation, and resource development. Amy is also a Certified Governance Trainer with Board Source and is trained in nonprofit Board education. Along with her work as a consultant, Amy is the Executive Director of the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, a private-independent foundation that grants more than $5-7 million annually to nonprofits in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
