Please join Adam C. Bratton, Executive Director of The Nonprofit Partnership, on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 for “Effective Board Meetings: The Key to a Strategic Board.”

Being on a Board of Directors entails more than just attending meetings. One of the biggest complaints about nonprofit Boards is that they think and act operationally rather than strategically. The heart of the problem is that meetings are led by CEOs and Board Chairs in a way that encourages Board members to focus on operational discussions.

Join Adam to learn how to craft effective Board and committee meetings that lead to better discussions and a better culture. He will discuss how Boards and CEOs prepare for meetings; the importance of great agendas, with examples; the leadership necessary to guide strategic dialogue; the value of effective follow-through and implementation; and more.

The participant will learn…

  1. Various methods and tools for preparing for Board and committee meetings
  2. The importance of meeting structure and examples of great meeting agendas
  3. Specific leadership skills necessary to encourage strategic dialogue
  4. How to make Board meetings more than merely an attendance fulfillment!

This session is appropriate for anyone involved in their organization’s Board meetings – especially CEOs and Board Chairs.

The level of learning for this workshop is beginner/intermediate.
