Nonprofit Bootcamp for Directors and Senior Professionals

The environment for nonprofits has never been more challenging. While navigating a shifting legal and societal landscape, nonprofits grapple with a host of knotty problems stemming from economic inequality, growing social and political fragmentation, challenges to free speech, rapid technological change, climate change, and other existential threats on a global scale. To advance their missions in these challenging times, nonprofits depend on board members and senior professionals for effective leadership.

Join us for an intensive training session on how to be more effective. This program is designed for new and veteran board members and senior professionals. Our experts will share insights, lead lively discussions, and introduce you to other distinguished nonprofit trustees and professionals.

Key topics:

  • What are the newest and most pressing challenges facing nonprofits?
  • What are my and my institution’s legal responsibilities?
  • What landmines can lead to institutional or personal embarrassment or liability?
  • How can I help allocate resources wisely, innovate, and cut costs?
  • How can I help enhance my nonprofit’s fundraising?
  • What is the right allocation of responsibilities between board members and professionals?
