“What is the link between nonprofit boards and sustainability?” you might ask. The answer is leadership.  Leadership isn’t simply something an organization comes by, nor is it a static quality that once developed stays forever. Leadership is a resource in need of development, management, and a clear picture of drivers and motivators. The best boards come from communities that take a long-term perspective and develop leadership as a sustainable resource. Doing so ensures that it continuously adds qualified new members to its roster and keeps them engaged.  Board building shouldn’t just happen when it is time to fill a vacancy; it should be an ongoing process with year-around activities.  Applying rules of sustainability to the topic of Board development, this webinar guides participants through a process that focuses on the different steps needed to build an effective board that is sustainable over the long term.  Understanding these steps can help boards avoid the common ups and downs of building and maintaining an enthusiastic board.
