Training handouts from “Revitalizing your board”
I had the pleasure of presenting a three-hour workshop called “Revitalizing your Board” on July 16th and July 26th through New Roots Providence.
We had a great crowd for both workshops. What was really amazing to me was that almost 30 people turned out on a sunny Saturday morning in the summer to explore ways to pump up their board of directors.
It was great to see the wonderful array of faces in the audience… young and old, teeny tiny organizations and some larger ones, and staff and volunteers. I’d like to thank the New Roots Providence staff (shown here from left to right Monsurat Ottun, Director Nzinga Misgana, Sabina Matos & Bernadette Tavares) for inviting me to present. You make it easy!
I always enjoy the opportunity to meet many new people and learn about the challenges of organizations I haven’t encountered before. New Roots reaches out to small faith based and community based organizations.
Despite their size or geographic location, what I’ve found that all nonprofits have in common is the desire to create a board that adds real value to their organization, while at the same time making board service fulfilling and enjoyable.
