WEBINAR SERIES: Hey Now: You’re A Board Star: Building A Championship Nonprofit Leadership Team Webinar Series


If you are or plan to be a nonprofit chair, board member, or CEO, and you believe a stronger board leads to a more impactful organization, join a powerful group of colleagues for an energizing day jam-packed with valuable perspectives, practical tools, and resources.  Originally planned as a one day conference, this has now been converted to a webinar series.

  • Provide background information on Support Center’s governance programs funded by DYCD and these opportunities

  • Raise awareness among boards around key aspects of governance including board self-awareness, the chair/CEO partnership, compliance, recruitment, and fundraising.

  • Provide opportunities for peer learning and networking.

  • Motivate attendees to undertake governance work within their own organizations.

– Board Assessment: Know The Score Whether aiming to win more games, make more money, or win more votes, successful team leaders periodically assess their performance and identify areas to improve. At the highest level in a nonprofit, that role belongs to the Board of Directors, and it starts with assessment. We’ll begin by reviewing the list of Board Roles & Responsibilities to identify ways your organization’s board can ask and answer the questions that enable it to assess itself and increase the organization’s impact.

  • Facilitator: Keith Timko, Support Center, Executive Director

– What Goes On In Our Board, Stays In Our Board: Playing Your Best Inside Game Hands-off boards are only fun until someone takes an eye out… or an organization goes into crisis mode because of fraud, mismanagement, or from a more mundane but just as lethal lack of planning and evaluation. This session will provide insight and tools boards can use to plan and lead ethically, financially and legally responsible organizations.
