Today’s nonprofit board members and their organizations face a challenging environment with increasing competition, sophisticated donors and new methods of solicitation. How should the nonprofit leaders change their approach to help board members react to this environment more effectively and provide leadership that supports their nonprofit organizations? How can board members use their time and commitment to become better ambassadors and help organizations increase their impact and meet their missions?
In this program, you will learn tools to assist executives and board members in maximizing the organization’s potential through understanding regulation and oversight. You will explore the strategic issues facing boards today, the key roles of vision in your strategy and understand how to approach risk management. Kellogg Center for Nonprofit Management faculty and practitioners will engage you with a rich mix of classroom learning and interactive discussion.
