"The ABCs of Building better boards"
with Jean Block
we will send the training package right to you, so you can learn on your time!
Session 1: A is for Acquire
Get ready, get set, GO! This webinar will focus on the best practices in recruiting exceptional board members, getting new board members on the same page from the beginning. Sending a clear and consistent message about your expectations of Time, Talent and Treasure will reap great benefits. We’ll discuss recruitment tools, important forms, the effective nominating committee, creating a matrix before you recruit, and the importance of new board member orientation, bylaws and a board operating policy manual.
Session 2: B is for Build and C is for Celebrate
You Get What You Accept and What You Reward. Exceptional board members must be trained and must understand their critical roles and responsibilities so they are prepared to operate as individual parts of a cohesive board that is focused on results and mission. This session will discuss the basic roles and responsibilities of board members in 4 critical nonprofit management areas: governance, finance, human resources and planning. Keeping the board performance bar high is the best way to keep exceptional board members engaged and recruit new ones.
Session 3:A Menu of FUNdraising Opportunities for Board Members
OK, ever wonder why there isn’t a quorum at the next board meeting when you’ve asked board members to bring a list of people they will ask for money this year? It’s no wonder! Most board members dread the idea of fundraising, so this session will start with a discussion of why board members must set the example for others by giving and then getting. But there are so many other ways to support your organization and get involved in FUNdraising.

All this for $55!
