The board of directors is the governing body of a nonprofit organization and members are responsible for overseeing the organization’s strategic implementation of activities and financial viability. Having an engaged board who understands the programs and finances ensures strategic decisions are well informed. Engagement will vary for each board and for each board member. This workshop will share key reasons why board members disengage and various approaches to keeping them committed and active. Attendees will leave with an increased understanding of what engagement approaches are appropriate for their board and tools to engage their board members more effectively. This training is open to all but is designed for Board Chairs or members of the committees dedicated to board engagement.
