Surviving and Thriving in a Challenging Nonprofit Environment: Ten Keys to Success
Featured Speaker: Kathryn Miree, Philanthropic Advisory Consultant

Nonprofit organizations work in an ever-changing, dynamic environment characterized by economic challenges, legislative changes, and an increasing demand for services. Surviving – or more importantly thriving – requires clear communication, strategy, and the ability to respond to emerging needs and the environment; it requires an active, engaged board and strong donor partnerships; and it requires the ability to leverage technology to maximize outreach, measure impact, and identify opportunities.

Building an Effective, Dynamic, and Engaged Board
Featured Speaker: Kathryn Miree, Philanthropic Advisory Consultant

Nonprofit boards are essential to organizational success, with responsibility for setting the strategy and direction of the nonprofit, ensuring adequate financial resources, selecting and managing the chief executive, and overseeing the nonprofit’s work. Building an effective, dynamic, and engaged board requires a clear strategy in recruiting, setting expectations on the board members' role in recruitment, training that ensures effectiveness, meaningful opportunities to partner with the organization in its work, and ongoing evaluation of the board’s engagement. In this session, you’ll learn the transformational steps and strategies to build, manage, and maximize the impact of your nonprofit board, which you can begin to use immediately. The video includes snippets from additional breakout sessions, including "The Attorney-Client Relationship: Getting the Most Value from Your Lawyer" and "Supporting Organizations: Pros, Cons, and Relationship Management."
