Boot Camp: Finding Good Board Members @ Mansour Center
Sep 14 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join presenter, Glenda Hicks, for a board building experience.

This workshop will train you on the process for identifying your board needs, cultivating board member prospects, and properly orienting them to your agency and their board member roles and responsibilities. Learn tools and best practices, share your challenges with peers, and engage in activities to increase your recruitment and retention success.

In a national survey (see www.leadingwithintent.org) 27% of CEO’s and 13% of board chairs did not believe they had the right board members to effectively oversee and govern their organizations.  Fifty-eight percent of CEO’s and 53% of board chairs felt it was “difficult to very difficult” to find people to serve on their board.  Help yourself to get the right people in the right seats around your board table to steer your organization into a sustainable future.

Boot Camp: Understanding Nonprofit Finances to Lead Your Organization @ Mansour Center
Oct 18 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join presenter, Glenda Hicks, for an eye-opening experience.

Understanding nonprofit finances is not [just] a necessary evil, but it is a vital component to leading your organization into a sustainable future.  Preparing your organization for its first audit, using the audit process to strengthen operations, making decisions about service expansion, location closures, or program costs versus benefits, all hinge on understanding and incorporating finance into the conversation.  Are you looking to introduce dashboards to meeting agendas for better understanding and decision making; or ramping up to prepare next year’s budget; or have board members who feel lost when finances are discussed? Join us for this workshop to strengthen your understanding and use of financial information and available tools.

Who Should Attend

Executive Director/CEO, Finance/Accounting Staff, Finance Committee Members, Board Members, Board Chair, Board President
