Harmony: The Executive Director & the Board

There is, perhaps, no more important relationship in a nonprofit organization than that between the executive director and the board of directors.  When that relationship is working well, everyone can easily go about his or her business, the mission gets fulfilled and the organization “sings”.  When that relationship is not working well, more time, energy and attention goes to the relationship – venting, railing, wringing of hands, etc. – and not to fulfilling the mission. 

If you are an executive director/CEO and would like your board to “sing” in harmony with you in your ED role, this is the program for you.  Join Luann Feehan, executive director of Nonprofit Connect and certified BoardSource trainer, for an exploration of: 
  • The roles & responsibilities of board leadership
  • The key elements of a successful board-executive director relationship,  
  • The actual execution of that partnership
  • Identifying where and what, if any, work needs to take place to ensure a successful partnership
As a nonprofit leader, this is your opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the board–executive director relationship. You’ll leave this session recognizing the need to work on the relationship, not just in it, in order to best develop and strengthen trust - -  strategic work that is essential to organizational effectiveness.

Please note:  Attendance at this event is solely for nonprofit Executive Directors and CEOs.
