Serving as a Not-for-Profit Board Chair: 3 thought leaders share their perspectives

Being a board chair of a not-for-profit organization is an important and challenging role. You lead a team of board members, develop a strong relationship with the senior leadership, and are a catalyst for critical board discussions. How do you develop the required skills to be an effective board chair? How do you ensure board engagement and diversity? Who can you talk to about your challenges or doubts?

Join local not-for-profit board chairs and Vantage Point for an opportunity to learn from and connect with your peers. Focused specifically on the unique and critical role of the board chair, our panel of thought leaders will share their perspectives on these questions and more.

This stimulating and interactive forum will:

  • elevate your awareness around challenges board chairs face
  • promote the exchange of ideas and best practices
  • build connections with board chairs from across the sector
