Building an Effective CEO + Board Chair Partnership

Workshop

  • January 25, 2023
  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

It has often been said that a healthy relationship between the board chair and executive director/CEO goes a long way toward building an effective organization. Does this partnership take work? You bet it does, but it’s well worth the effort to help the nonprofit accomplish its mission, as well as to minimize the stress of the board and staff.

We recommend the nonprofit’s executive director and board chair attend this session together to explore their critical relationship and to discuss how they will support each other in leading their organization to success.

This workshop will have closed captioning available through the online service Otter.ai.

I have spent my career working and consulting in the nonprofit sector in the Twin Cities. I began as a Paralegal at Southern MN Regional Legal Services, then Foundation Relations Manager at Greater Twin Cities United Way, and most recently, the Executive Director at Minnesota Women’s Consortium. My consulting practice focused on identity-driven leadership, culturally-affirming nonprofit management and inclusion initiatives, and prioritized people of color-led organizations including Mu Performing Arts, Centro Tyrone Guzman, Hmong Cultural Center, The Power of People Leadership Institute, and Hnub Tshiab: Hmong Women Achieving Together.

Mario Hernandez

I’m a firm believer of nonprofits’ ability to build and sustain a more just society. I’ve been in the sector for nearly 20 years and have served in numerous executive leadership and board roles—executive director, vice president and chief operating office, board chair, board vice chair, and board treasurer. I’m excited to share what I’ve learned leading organizations with other current and emerging nonprofit leaders. I enjoy talking strategy, methodical operation plans and marketing campaigns, collective impact through collaboration, inclusive leadership development, and paying for it all through sustainable business models. St. Paul is my home. I cross the river daily. Family and connection to community matter to me.
