We encourage nonprofit dyads of your Board Chair and Executive Director/CEO to participate together in this workshop.

Recognizing that this key partnership is invaluable in setting the tone for the overall board/staff relationship in organizations and having an effective board, join us in exploring some of the tips and best practices for building a strong and productive leadership partnership. Establishing and maintaining a trusting relationship where each party stays in their own lane requires regular communications and intentional efforts between board meetings. Share your insights about how to make this interdependent relationship work and discover some of the pitfalls to avoid.

Succession planning isn’t just for staff. Strategies for nurturing emerging board leaders and building board relationships that encourage new leaders to step up are among the subjects discussed during this session. Find out how the executive director can be a cooperative partner in identifying and preparing future board officers, particularly board chairs. And learn how some organizations ensure that former board chairs stay engaged with their organizations after their terms end to preserve continuity.
