Building a World Class Board

Thursday, April 21, 12-2pm
Capital One 360 Cafe, 101 Post Street (at Kearny), SF, Golden Gate Room, downstairs

Have you been asked to join a board only to discover the organization doesn’t know anything about your skill set? Do you struggle to get your board members to work together on the projects most important to advancing your mission? Finding enthusiastic volunteers is only the beginning of building a world class, volunteer board. A great board requires thoughtful planning and regular attention from both the board members and from the organization’s staff. Join us for an intimate roundtable discussion about best practices in identifying and developing effective nonprofit boards.

The roundtable will be facilitated by Heather Erickson, former President & CEO of the Life Sciences Foundation and founding President of MedTech Association. She has also served on the boards of technology incubators, residential facilities, university departments, and state economic development initiatives. Heather is Yale Class of ’99 and works in the fields of organization development, strategy consulting, start up operations, and executive communications.

Bring your lunch. Space is limited, RSVP here
