Better Together: How to Build a Strong Board Chair-Chief Executive Partnership

This PREMIUM course brought to you by Nonprofit Academy

The “chief executive-board chair” leadership pair drives a nonprofits success.

When it is poor, progress stagnates as the chief executive waits for relief and the board chair casts about ineffectively.

They’re both happier and more fulfilled; The organization achieves more for the mission; Fundraising, board and staff engagement, and program performance all improve. This webinar will inspire and equip you to immediately strengthen your partnership.

-The three keys to a strong partnership

-To quickly assess your own partnership

-Quick action steps to take no matter where your partnership’s at: OK, good, great, or even dysfunctional
