*Board Fundamentals: Different and Better: Strategies to Build a Strong Board and Successful Organization
Event Category 

This workshop is being offered free of charge.

There are two attendance options:

  • In-person at the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, 3117 Greenhill Circle, Cedar Falls, or
  • Virtual

Who Should Attend:
Board members and senior nonprofit staff members, including development staff.

The Workshop:
While a common passion for the mission of an organization can unify a board, it can be the differences of individual members that strengthen overall board performance and improve organizational impact. This session begins by sharing stories that illustrate the ways differences have benefited boards, organizations, and the people they serve. We will explore a range of differences we should be considering as we recruit and build a board team. We will also discuss strategies to ensure that differences are generative and not destructive.
