Event description

Description

Engaging in board service is an invaluable opportunity to have substantial community impact and can be one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences. Non-governing boards, such as junior boards or advisory councils, are creative tools for nonprofits to cultivate the next generation of talented leaders. These types of boards are an effective way to reach emerging leaders and add to a nonprofit’s overall diversity by fostering the support of new donors.

Key Takeaways:

  • Exposure to diverse perspectives on forming a non-governing board, specifically junior boards and advisory councils;
  • Learn the nuts-and-bolts for creating a non-governing board as well as how to build a pipeline for recruiting members; and,
  • Understand the added value of institutionalizing a non-governing board.

The panel will be moderated by Marnie Berk, Director of Pro Bono Programs at NYLPI, and will feature as panelists Rob Acton, Principal and Founder of Cause Strategy Partners, Karen Gamarra, Chair of the Young Executive Board for iMentor, and Naomi Solomon, Program Manager at Girls Write Now and Girls Write Now Youth Board liaison.

This workshop is ideal for nonprofits looking to explore, learn more, or further build their junior boards and/or advisory boards
