Workshop Topics:

Board Roles and Responsibilities

New and even seasoned nonprofit board members may not understand their basic obligations. In this session, the Center for Nonprofit Stewardship’s Program Director, Jess Hampton, will explore the legal duties, roles and responsibilities of volunteer board members in governing charitable and other nonprofit organizations.

Board Member Recruitment & Retention 

As part of CNS’s work with The Ford Family Foundation, Jess Hampton has prepared tools for boards who are concerned about recruitment and retention. In this session, she will present ways to recruit new members and keep current board members engaged. 

Practical Ways to Engage your Board in Fundraising

A common complaint among board leadership and staff is a board that “doesn’t do” fundraising. Please join us for a workshop that will provide strategies for turning your board members into ambassadors for your cause. You’ll come away with practical tools, tips, and activities to rouse your board into fundraising roles that fit the individual and produce results. Presenter TBA.
