About this event

Paula Manley, Nonprofit Consultant & Trainer, Paula Manley Consulting

Continental Breakfast & Networking at 7:30
Presentation at 8:00

Nonprofit board service is about community leadership. In an era of complexity, significant challenges and continual change, our nonprofit organizations are best served with multiple board leaders. Leadership develops out of genuine engagement. Are we doing all we can to engage board members with meaningful opportunities that contribute to mission achievement? Are we actively developing board leaders for today and tomorrow?

In this highly interactive session, we will:

  • Explore the benefits of fostering a board culture in which learning and leadership development are norms
  • Consider how leadership develops—through a combination of feedback, challenges, and support
  • Revisit expectations for board service and re-frame expectations with leadership in mind
  • Consider the executive director’s role in building board leadership
  • Identify specific steps to create more “leader-full” boards of directors

Join us for “Building Board Leadership” with Paula Manley. Paula brings years of experience as a nonprofit board chair, executive director, board member, and program volunteer. In this lively session, she will provide a combination of theoretical frameworks, practical suggestions, and hands-on learning activities that draw from the experiences of participants.
