The Life Cycle of a Board Member: Board Recruitment, Engagement, Leadership Development & Succession Planning [Utica]

The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties invites staff and board members of nonprofit organizations to attend a free training workshop titled "The Life Cycle of a Board Member: Board Recruitment, Engagement, Leadership Development & Succession Planning" presented by Susan Weinrich, Senior Vice President, Organizational & Community Development at NYCON.

Registration and continental breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m., presentation from 9 a.m. to noon. Registration is required as seating is limited.

Nonprofit board leaders come to our organizations in a variety of ways. What are some of the best practices for recruiting those who care about, and can truly enhance, the work of our mission? How best do we guide those board members through the engagement funnel to develop the best and brightest leaders? How do we empower them to navigate the challenges and demands of running a nonprofit? And, finally, what are the best ways to create a culture of evolution, always acknowledge the need to improve and change depending on the growth and trajectory of the organization and mission? This presentation will take a high-level look at the complete life cycle of board membership, how best to create a culture that fosters an environment of engagement, leadership development and support creative forward thinking about change and succession.
