2019 Collaborative Conference

Great leaders of volunteer bodies, including governing and advisory boards, operate with three principles in mind: inspire, organize, and collaborate. In this workshop, we will consider why each of these three principles is critical to excellent leadership, what the principles entail, and how they can be implemented. We will focus on the context of nonprofit governing boards, but the principles can be applied to anyone who has responsibility for leading or directing volunteer committees or boards.

41st Annual National Conference on Faith-Based Service

A board (governing, advisory, or of limited jurisdiction) holds great potential for advancing the mission of faith-based volunteer programs. But, often, the potential goes unrealized. In this workshop, we explore the importance of sharing leadership with the board, the challenges inherent in doing so, and a framework for building a board that can fuel the organization’s success and sustainability. It is the courageous executive director that embraces the challenges of creating a fully engaged board and welcomes the tensions of shared leadership. The reward for such courageous leadership is a board that can impact the organization in otherwise unattainable ways.
