Six Things You Can Do Right Now to Boost Your Board’s Performance, June 26

Posted by SERVE Philadelphia on June 18, 2019

Serve Philadelphia is partnering with BoardSource to host ‘Six Things You Can Do Right Now to Boost Your Board’s Performance’, Wednesday, June 26, 2019 from 3:00pm-6:30pm in Conversation Hall at City Hall (2nd Floor).

“The nonprofit Board model is broken.” You’ve likely heard this sentiment uttered by nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, and Board members alike.  While unquestionably provocative, there appears to be some truth to it. BoardSource’s leading national survey on nonprofit governance finds that Boards earn on average a B- in overall Board performance.  Most boards are mediocre, at best. Many others are failing the organization and its mission completely. It shouldn’t be that way.

There are several high-impact strategies that nonprofit executives and Board leaders can immediately deploy to boost the performance – and thus, overall impact – of their nonprofit’s Board.  During this session, leaders from Cause Strategy Partners and BoardLead will present six interventions to optimize Board performance. These interventions fall into four key categories:

  • Building an effective board development process
  • Making better use of board meetings
  • Strengthening board culture
  • Integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into the boardroom and beyon

Change often takes months of planning, socialization, buy-in, and execution.  This session is designed for nonprofit executives and Board officers who need their Boards to improve faster.  Utilizing a highly-interactive learning style, this session will arm participants with innovative ideas and specific action steps that will accelerate your Board’s performance today. The session will conclude with a cocktail networking reception as we are joined by WeWork entrepreneurs interested in learning about and identifying nonprofit board service opportunities.

There is still space for partnering organizations to attend! To register for this event please click here.
