Strong Board. Strong Strategy. Sign up Today!

September 01, 2016


We get it! As a mission driven organization the ultimate reward is reaching your goal. Your team is equipped with necessary skills and tools. A dozen homes have been built. Several families have been fed. New opportunities in urban farming are opening. And there is music everywhere!

But the fulfillment of your goals wouldn’t be possible without a strategic plan. And your strategic plan is strongest if your board is involved.

A strategic planning process identifies strategies so that a nonprofit will achieve its mission. Ideally, as staff and board engage in the process, they become committed to measurable goals, approve priorities for implementation, and also commit to revisiting the organization’s strategies on an ongoing basis as the organization’s internal and external environments change. – National Council of Nonprofits

CNE wants your board to be well versed in strategic planning. We also want board members to feel good about their role and their contribution. Whether you are an organization seeking to improve your board’s involvement, or an existing board member hoping to deepen your knowledge, our workshop, Board’s Role in Strategy will help. Led by CNE Program Director, Cindy Colson, participants will walk away with clear next steps for advancing the role of the board in the strategic planning of your organization.

Part of our Governance Matters series, this training is scheduled from 7:30am to 9:00am so you can fit into your busy workday. We promise to have fresh, warm coffee!

Share this with new, seasoned, and rising board members! Questions about any of our Governance Matters programs? Contact Program Manager, Andrew Robinson.
