A board is a lot to manage.
On days when stewarding your nonprofit’s cohort of passionate people feels like a bit of a mess, the reality is often that we haven’t been real about what we need from volunteer leaders to make mission.
Join Alyssa Wright to get clarity on how a board is best built to help you scale your mission. Alyssa will discuss how we identify board members that need to go. fire them gently as well as notice the opportunities to bring in new board members and how to get them excited to join your work.
She’ll get real about board development and dive into ways to reimagine how a board can help your mission, not hinder it.
