Wednesday, August 16th - AFP of NWA Monthly Luncheon Meeting
More Than Just A Warm Body
presented by Blake Woolsey, Executive VP, Mitchell Communications Group
A strong board of directors can make all of the difference in the world for your organizations! Long gone are the days that we just need a “warm body”, OR we tell a candidate we want them to serve and “it doesn’t require much time or attention.” Some of us have also made the mistake of not talking about how our board members need to assist with fundraising – going beyond attending the annual event held.
This begs the question: how do you build your board? Many of us inherit boards. What do you do if you realize you don’t have the right board to take your organization to the next level? Our board members need to think of their nonprofit board seat as a deep responsibility and a job that requires care and attention. That responsibility heightens and becomes even more critical in difficult economic times and where headlines are creating doubts in the minds of donors and stakeholders. Board members are a powerful value add – sometimes game changers for you. So, how do you make sure you have a boardroom filled with members who want to fulfill the mission that could change the community, the region . . . or even history . . . because we know it will require more than just a “warm body?”
