When asked why you serve on a board for a nonprofit, people usually say something like, they:
- believe in the organization’s mission
- want to help the organization advance its mission
- want to use their gifts and talents to make their community and the world a better place, and maybe even
- see board service as an avenue to fulfill a Biblical mission or mandate.
These are all great motivators, but unfortunately many board members discover the reality of board service is somewhat different from they expected and in some cases even a big disappointment.
Does it have to be that way? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Join us on Saturday, January 28, 2012 for an exciting and interactive session exploring structure, strategies, and actions that Build BOLD Boards that Produce Extraordinary Results. This session is for board rookies, veterans, or wannabes.
The class will be from 9am to 3pm at Peachtree Presbyterian Church. Please email Chris York at email@example.com if you’d like to reserve your spot.
Kevin Monroe is part of the LEAD Atlanta faculty and also heads X Factor Consulting, a local firm that equips organizations (and their boards) to produce extraordinary results. He provides training, consulting, and coaching to nonprofit boards both locally and nationally. Some of the local organizations he has served include the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children and Clifton Sanctuary Ministries (both LEAD graduates). Nationally he has worked with groups including the Meals on Wheels Association of America, the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. In this session he’ll pull lessons from all of these experiences and maps out a better way for board service.
