Webinar - Civil Board Meetings in Uncivil Times: The Structure to Move Forward

Wednesday, January 31 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
Online Event


Does your board of directors keep the organization moving forward? Or do you find that conversations and decisions are delayed or misfired due to internal politics, clashing personalities, or external conversations that bypass or silence voices in the board meetings? Join BoardSource's Director of Education Andy Davis as he covers:
  • How to structure the board so that people are in the right places
  • What to do about sticky situations such as board members who are also major donors to the organization, or are immediate family members of leadership staff
  • How to structure board meetings so that voices are heard and valued, and progress keeps up a healthy pace
  • What a board member, board chair, and executive director can do to ensure civility and candor, in order to get past politics and external conversations
Due to the potential sensitivity of the topic, your registration and questions will be shared only with the presenter. Take advantage of the opportunity to ask honest questions of a nationally-recognized board development expert.
About the presenter: Andy Davis creates and delivers BoardSource's public trainings to the nonprofit sector, oversees BoardSource's Certified Governance Trainer program, and works with the organization's clients nationally to develop and deliver respected consulting and training services in board development.
