Reinvigorate, Inspire, and Grow Your Board

The last three years wreaked havoc on nonprofit board leadership nationwide, so if you’re struggling, you’re not alone! This interactive and engaging session will explore some underlying reasons why we’re seeing a decline in board participation, and offer concrete, practical, no-cost tips to re-engage your burned out or disengaged leaders and recruit new ones. We’ll find out what research says people are longing for to remain loyal and generous and how you can deliver that to them with ease.

Author of the award-winning book, Boards on Fire!, Susan has been lead faculty in the University of Washington’s Nonprofit Leadership Certificate for 30 years.
