Onward! A Legacy Foundation, in conjunction with Hospice of Montezuma, is pleased to welcome Denise Clark back to Montezuma County for two half-day board training intensives. Training is open to all in the four corners region.
Wed, July 24 - Nonprofit Governance: What The Job Really Entails - 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
What happens after you successfully recruit and elect new members to your board? New board members should be orientated to the organization and educated on what it means to serve on a nonprofit board. By educating new members, they gain the knowledge they need to successfully carry out their governance responsibilities. It is important to bring board members up to speed as soon as possible to prepare them for active participation. Serving on a nonprofit board should be a fulfilling and rewarding experience. Understanding what the job entails improves the board member's experience and increases the effectiveness of the entire board. Please note that this workshop focuses on the primary roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit board and has been designed for both new and seasoned board members and executive directors. Everyone is welcome!
Tues, July 30 - Getting The Right People On Your Board: Insider Secrets and Hot Tips - 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
How do new members get recruited to your board of directors? Is a faithful volunteer offered a board position as a type of promotion? Does your nominating committee scramble to find candidates with a pulse to fill open positions? Does the executive director identify most of your board prospects? The job of building the board is more than just filing slots. It is about being strategic in the way a board looks at its composition and what is needed to build an effective, diverse, and representative board. Good boards wanting to become great boards will take the time to carefully determine who should be at the table and develop a plan to strategically identify, cultivate, and recruit new board members. This workshop will inspire you to rethink your entire board recruitment process, guide you through the board building cycle, and provide ready-to-use templates so you can get started right away.
Both trainings will take place at Hospice of Montezuma.
