ED Discussion Group (Smaller Organizations): Facilitating Effective Board Meetings

Are you an executive director, lead staff, or sole employee, of a small nonprofit? Are you looking for opportunities to meet with and learn from others working in similar roles?

Our Executive Directors’ Discussion Group (Smaller Organizations) offers a space for peer learning and support. Come to gain a fresh perspective on your current challenges or learn about others’ approaches to the perennial problems that smaller organizations face no matter their focus area.

Agenda

8:45 — Coffee & Catch Up (optional)

9:00 — Welcome & Group Norms

9:05 — Discussion: Facilitating Effective Board Meetings

9:55 — Planning for Next Meeting & Evaluation

Group members will rely on peer-support to troubleshoot real-time challenges and, in turn, provide guidance and support to their peers.

This program is intended for executive directors or sole staff members from smaller, established nonprofit organizations. We understand a smaller organization to have an annual operating less than $500,000 and/or less than 6 full-time employees. If you have questions about getting your nonprofit going, take a look at our Starting a Nonprofit Toolkit.
