Adirondack Foundation and one of its component funds, the Community Fund for the Gore Mountain Region, have invited nonprofit professionals and board members to attend a one-day workshop, “Building Your Best Board,” to be held at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on May 11, from 10 am to 3 pm.
Recruiting, retaining, and engaging board members are essential to a nonprofit’s success. These volunteer leaders bring a wide range of skills and connections.
Andy Robinson, who has trained and supported thousands of nonprofit staff and volunteer leaders in 47 states and across Canada, will lead the workshop and cover these topics:
· How boards evolve as organizations grow and change
· Finding and filling gaps on your board
· Creating and using a board “job description”
· Board orientation strategies
· Training and motivating your board to raise money
Pre-registration is required and can be completed online here. The cost per person is $40 for organizations with an operating budget over $100,000 or $20 for organizations with budgets under $100,000. For more information, contact Lindsay Yost at (518) 523-9904 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
