Do You Know What Your Board Wants? Lessons From Trustees You Can Put to Work Now (presented by the The Chronicle of Philanthropy)

It doesn’t matter whether a board member is passionate about your organization’s cause. Boards get a lot from training. Great volunteers make great board members.

Those are just a few of the many myths that June Bradham, veteran fund-raising consultant, debunked when she interviewed scores of board members.

Join us for a one-hour Webinar to get a preview of Ms. Bradham’s latest research. You will also learn from William Hewitt, a business executive who has served on nearly a dozen nonprofit and corporate boards. He’ll share valuable insights that you might never hear from your own board members.

Together these experts will show you how to map out a course for forging effective relationships between nonprofit staff and board members.
