These are paradoxical times for nonprofit organizations and their boards. More than ever, boards are being recognized for their value and importance to organizational impact and success. Yet our boards are more challenged than ever. There is a lot of competition for time and talent, and the challenge of recruiting, retaining, engaging and mobilizing a diverse and sophisticated team of people who can make a significant difference is greater too. Even the best of boards tell us it's difficult to find and keep the people that they most need!
We invite you to join us for this timely and engaging workshop to learn, share ideas, and discuss with colleagues how we can make the most of a new generation of nonprofit boards. We will present the results of the new national survey of nonprofit executives and board leaders by BoardSource, and discuss how this information might inform our work in Kansas City. And we will share and discuss the implications of information about how nonprofit governing boards across the US are redesigning the ways they are organized, how they are developing their members and leaders, and engaging and mobilizing their members to truly achieve impact.
