Well trained board members extend your reach into the community, spreading the word about your nonprofit’s accomplishments, as well as building long term relationships with donors, funders and investors. To be successful, they need coordinated key messages, a story bank to pull from, good data to prove your results, and active coaching in order to effectively support your nonprofit’s vision for the future. It all starts with who you select for your board and if you do this well, you’ll have a life-long supporter for your cause.
Please join Lynn Ivey as she provides guidance on transforming your board members into effective ambassadors and resource raisers to support and further your nonprofit’s mission.
