SESSION 1 The Accidental Fundraiser: Tips and Tricks for Board Members Who Never Wanted to Fundraise in the First Place ONLY (Includes breakfast):
Board Member with a member or non-member: $20/each
The Accidental Fundraiser: Tips and Tricks for Board Members Who Never Wanted to Fundraise in the First Place: You joined a nonprofit board of directors because you believed in the organization's cause, but now they want you to FUNDRAISE. Yikes! Since you're going to have to help out with fundraising, let's make it fun! Learn about how to determine your best role in the development process, how to communicate your organization's impact in the community, and how to make the asking part a little more rewarding for you and your nonprofit. (NOTE: This session is designed for volunteer board members and the staff that support them.)
SESSION 2: How to Survive Your Board ONLY
Board Member with a member or non-member: $15/each
How to Survive Your Board “Mr. or Ms. Know It All.” “The Social Butterfly.” “The Eternal Pessimist.” There are many more “difficult children” on your board than just that, but it’s a start! Whether you are a staff person or a volunteer peer, it can be frustrating and counterproductive to ignore dysfunction on your board of directors. In this session, we’ll discuss the troublesome board member archetypes and how to identify champions of change, manage the change process, and gracefully “fire” a volunteer when needed.
