Did you attend the January “Reimagining Nonprofit Boards Conference” and come away with inspiration to make your board better? But, like some of us, you may have wondered what steps to take and in what order. There are lots of changes to consider, but what’s going to have the greatest impact on your board and board members? Or maybe you missed the conference, but you’ve been thinking about and even trying some new ways of doing things to make your board more effective while helping your board members have a more rewarding experience.

This guided conversation on Zoom may be just the right place for you on April 13th from 3:00 to 5:00 PM—for an interactive session facilitated by members of the Tucson Facilitators Guild, which will focus on three critical topics:

· Recruiting New Members for Board Service
· Creating a Joyful and Rewarding Board Experience
· Structural Changes that Make a Difference for Boards

We will spend a significant amount of our time together in small groups taking a deep dive into those three areas pinpointing high-impact changes, followed by reporting back to the larger group to build a consensus around specific new approaches and action steps that boards can take. By the end of the session, each participant should have identified at least three potential action steps to discuss with fellow board members and their executives to try with their boards.

We’ll adjourn the session at 5:00 PM so that participants who are interested can reconvene at the Community Foundation Campus for a Happy Hour Networking Session to continue these conversations informally. You are welcome to one or both activities.

Join us on Campus for networking and happy hour from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM!

Please save the date of September 7, 2023, from 3 PM to 5 PM to come back together again on Zoom to hear what worked, what didn’t, and what lessons members of the group learned following this April discussion.
