Building a Village: How to Re-Engage Your Board Members, Leaders and Volunteers
Far too often, executive directors feel alone, like it's all up to them, and wish their board members and volunteers would be more engaged and invigorated. Never has this been more true than during the crises of 2020. In this keynote, Joan Garry, a champion for nonprofit leaders will look at how you can (and must) build a strong army of engaged stakeholders in order to survive--and thrive--on "the other side." Joan will talk through practical steps you can take right now in order to build a village of ambassadors and lead with intention.
