What is your vision of your ideal board? Is it the board you really need? How do you build a board with the knowledge, talent, diverse perspectives and community connections that provide real value to your nonprofit? In this workshop, you’ll explore practical ways to find, vet and recruit the board members you need. And, you’ll discover new ways to create a board that is truly welcoming and inclusive, where power is balanced and people are eager to serve.
Two organizations will have the opportunity to receive guidance and coaching from Gayle for 3 months post workshop to help build their ideal board. The two organizations will be selected based on their registration responses and will have an exclusive opportunity to work with Gayle at no cost to them.
