The ABCs of Building Better Boards Edit Title
Wed, Jul 15, 2015 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date
It's as easy as ABC to create a well-functioning board of directors! Well, maybe not exactly easy, but this fast-paced webinar will share practical ways to Aquire, Build, and Celebrate to recruit, manage and reward the best board members. Starting with recruitment, we'll look at important tools that will help you attract committed and informed board members. Then, learn best practices in managing and retaining great board members, including the importance of new board orientation, clarifying board roles and responsibilities, and tips for holding effective meetings. Finally, we'll discuss the importance of recognizing and rewarding to keep the best board members on board. The webinar is presented by Jean Block, a nonprofit pro with more than 45 years experience in the sector as both board and staff leader for local, regional and national nonprofits. Jean's trainings and webinars are packed with practical, tried-and-true how-tos that you can put to use immediately.

I found the ABCs of Building Better Boards to cover all the right material, especially for those fairly new to nonprofits. I plan to use some of the materials to validate what I've been trying to teach my board is their responsibility.

The presentation was very helpful to me, as I am a first-time board president at a nonprofit community radio station. The members of the board are also relatively new, and I'd actually like for them to watch this in order to get a better sense of what they're supposed to be doing. We've got work to do, definitely!

I didn't like this particular webinar at all. There wasn't a clear target as to who this was addressed to. It seemed to be an approach for larger organizations rather then smaller NPO's.

Great presentation with lots of clear information.
