Building the Nonprofit Board Of The Future

THE TRAINING NEED

We live in a time of rapid, profound change. Faced with shrinking budgets, rapidly changing social needs, a hostile political climate, and ever more intense public scrutiny, today’s nonprofits are finding that it’s not enough to simply update a mission statement or patch over a list of outdated goals. The nonprofit board has a critical leadership role to play. Is your board ready? This workshop will provide information, skills, and techniques to prepare your board of directors.

Frank Martinelli will share his many years of experience not only as a trainer but more importantly as a staff person who has had to interact with boards and as a board leader with an insider's perspective.
