September 21, 2022

08:00:00 AM - 10:00:00 AM


This series will look at key issues such as board succession planning, the evolving role of the board, and the board/staff partnership.

For anyone interested in leadership, especially Board members, Executive Directors, and staff in leadership positions who work with Boards. This multi-part series will look at key issues such as board succession planning, the evolving role of the board, and the board/staff partnership.

Session 1: Leadership Principles and Practices - Collective leadership means that everyone in the group can serve as a leader; the team isn't dependent on one individual to take over. In this session, we’ll discuss different leadership structures including core concepts around “leaderful” organizations that allow for leadership opportunities across the organization. The session will include examples, frameworks, and opportunities for organizations to promote a more inclusive and expansive definition of leadership for the board and staff.

Please note: this is part of a four-part series. You must sign up for each session separately, but do not have to sign up for all four. Feel free to register for whichever works best for you!

$10 ticket includes breakfast and workshop.

Additionally, if you are staying for the late morning session - Fundraising and Communications Session 1: Baseline Reviews of Fundraising - you must register:
