There are several high-impact strategies that nonprofit executives and board leadership can immediately deploy to boost the performance – and thus, overall impact – of their nonprofit’s board. Back again this year by popular demand, during this session, Robert Acton – Principal & Founder of Cause Strategy Partners and BoardLead -- will present six interventions to optimize board performance. These interventions fall into three key categories: a) building a stronger board, b) better use of board meetings, and c) strengthening board culture. 

Change often takes months of planning, socialization, buy-in and execution. This session is designed for nonprofit executives and board leadership who need their boards to improve faster. Utilizing a highly-interactive learning style, this session will arm participants with innovative ideas and specific action steps that will accelerate your board’s performance today.

Key Takeaways:

  • Apply a best-in-class 8 stage board development process at your organization
  • Learn new strategies and tactics for building highly-engaging board meetings
  • Unlock ideas for strengthening your board's culture across four key continuums
  • Walk away with a specific action plan for optimizing your board's performance
  • Experience renewed confidence that positive change in Board engagement is possible

This workshop will be presented by Robert B. Acton, Principal & Founder of Cause Strategy Parners and BoardLead.
