Building an Effective CEO + Board Chair Partnership (Virtual)

Workshop

  • June 9, 2020
  • 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.

There’s a registration discount of $25 if both the Executive Director/CEO and Board Chair register for the workshop together. To receive the discount select the ED/CEO + Board Chair = $125 ticket type when registering.

We’ve modified our in-person Building an Effective CEO + Board Chair Partnership workshop slightly to take it to an interactive virtual format. Participants will receive materials prior to the workshop.
