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.
