Getting the Most out of your Board

Developing and Managing a Strong Board/Staff Relationship 

"I loved this workshop. It had a lot of information relevant to my organization's needs and I will highly recommend CEN to anyone running a nonprofit."

Workshop Description

According to BoardSource, “the partnership between the board and the executive leader is critically important to the success of an organization.”  Building – and managing – this partnership is easier said than done and often falls on the executive director's shoulders. We're here to help! In this workshop, we will look at ways you can effectively “manage up” to build stronger board relationships, engage each member, and move your board toward excellence. Participants will leave with a strong understanding of board management best practices and a plan to work more effectively with board members, leveraging key talent for maximum impact.

Intended Audience: Nonprofit Executive Directors and Key Staff


  • Gain strategies to improve your recruiting and on-boarding process to set the expectation for a high performing board
