SOAR: Building Your Board for a Complex World
What do you think would be an ideal board? Think again. If you believe you know what you, as a Fundraising Professional need in your next board recruit, consider where your nonprofit client is going. The route to the future is no longer straight and sure. Board members must draft maps and navigate to unforeseen destinations. Their orientation to framing priorities and balancing opportunities is grounded in an internal compass that establishes where they want to go and why.
Join us September 14 and you’ll learn how to decipher that compass and gain a new perspective on:
• Your board’s capacity for two types of transformation.
• How to determine what board recruits offer the future of a nonprofit.
• Who to recruit to balance board contributions and strategy.
• Balancing changing priorities with current board members.
This session approaches board recruitment from the dual vantage points of leadership maturity and strengths-based organizations. You will be introduced to ways to differentiate traditional board member requirements from those needed for organizational effectiveness in the 21st century.
In the process, we will discuss the advantage of understanding the potential of the organization, and its prospective and incumbent board members, to sustain, innovate and disrupt the nonprofit while strengthening the development portfolio.
