About the workshop: Back by popular demand,Chuck Loring returns to Brevard to share his expertise and help you build the capacity of your board/your organization. During this interactive day, you’ll learn from Chuck and your peers and gain knowledge of the major building blocks of an effective board. Areas of discussion include topics like how to identify, recruit and orient board members, board roles and responsibilities, effective board structure and the board’s role in fundraising.
This workshop is recommended for board members interested in being better prepared to make meaningful contributions to the organization you care so deeply about…to understand and handle the responsibilities of purposeful board membership, from legal liability to strategic planning. It’s never been a better time to invest in your nonprofit leadership.
If you serve on a board(s) or are seeking a board service volunteer position – or if you are a staff member working with a board of directors – you’ll benefit from attending this workshop. Here’s what several of last year’s attendees had to say: “Tactical, actionable for board members.” “Role & function of board; fundraising section was very beneficial!” “A great road map for board recruitment and retention.” “Great information & great workshop!”
Bring your board members and leadership team to this day-long seminar and catch some of Chuck Loring's contagious enthusiasm for excellence in board governance and fundraising. This workshop is a great way to prepare for your next board retreat.
