How to Change the Board You Have

Recruiting and managing a nonprofit board of directors is a challenging job on a good day.

You may have wanted to improve your board before this global crisis hit.  Can you still change the board you have?  Yes! In this session, our special guest Rachel Muir, CFRE will show you how.

Recruiting, leading and developing a leadership team made up solely of volunteers is one of the most ambitious and daunting responsibilities a CEO or Executive Director will have.  In this session, you’ll learn the delicate art of managing your board and how to spark change to change the board you have.

You’ll discover:

  • How to create graceful exits for board members who need to go
  • How to use board assessments or surveys to spark the change you want in your board
  • Tools and templates to manage your board (including a sample board contract)

Rachel Muir knows boards—she does tons of board retreats and training! In this session, she gives you the tools you need to turn the board you have into the board you’ve always dreamed about.
