WEBINAR: Recession Proof Your Board
March 10 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Faculty: Ginny Waller, Waller Consulting
Course Description: If anything, the pandemic further reiterated what we already knew: there are fewer resources than ever; keeping volunteers engaged in their love language in this digital age is challenging; and the most successful organizations have highly-motivated and effective fundraising boards.
This session will help nonprofit leaders rebuild their boards into the governance models and fundraising machines needed post-COVID. Presenter will utilize traditional PowerPoint to present outline of the training. Presenter will also use polling to determine the role of attendees with board development, assess attendee’s organizational capacity for board recruitment and fundraising, and ask other relevant questions to engage attendees in the training. Presenter will show a video of a traditional nonprofit board meeting to entertain and alert attendees to unhealthy board operations. Presenter will also facilitate breakout sessions among attendees to provide attendees time to brainstorm strategy and methods for their organizations using the benefit of peer experience.
Attendees can expect the following Learning Outcomes:
• Participants will recognize the importance of a transition away from the mindset of recruiting board members who know all the right people and have deep pockets.
• Participants will obtain material tools to assist in development of a clear board recruitment strategy.
• Participants will walk away with step-by-step instructions on engaging their current board members in healthy recruitment and creating a long-term and sustainable board-led recruitment culture within the organization.
