    • Cary Memorial Library
    • 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
    • The goal of this workshop is to provide insight into the value and purpose(s) of the nonprofit board and its relationship with the senior staff.

      A strong and positive relationship between the board and senior staff, especially the chief executive, is widely recognized as a critical ingredient for a healthy organization and its ability to achieve impact. Having clarity in the roles, responsibilities and expectations of both – board and senior staff – helps to build a productive, working relationship based on mutual understanding and commitment to serve the best interests of the nonprofit organization, clients and community.

      *The Nonprofit Board’s Purpose, Roles, and Responsibilities: Why It Matters
      *Governance as Leadership – Three Modes of Governance

She’ll share some examples and encourages participants to come ready to share their experiences as well. The focus of this conversation will be on storytelling ideas and what to do with them, not on the technical aspects of video production or editing.
