Douglas W. Eberle Board Governance Series
The Douglas W. Eberle Nonprofit Board Governance Series was established in 2008 to strengthen and sustain Not-For-Profit Boards in Tippecanoe and the surrounding counties. NCHS is partnering with The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette and United Way to present the education series. The purpose of this program is to build knowledge about responsible oversight and governance, and effective responses to policy and management issues faced by today’s Not-For-Profit volunteer leaders. The continuing education series is designed for, and limited to, Board volunteers and Executive Director teams.

In 2020, we were unexpectedly thrust into the world of virtual workplaces. Many organizations continue to embrace the flexibility and convenience of virtual work, but may not have the tools to ensure an efficient and streamlined transition. In this session, learn how to optimize your current workplace to establish a healthy culture to thrive with virtual work.
October 6th Recruiting and Orienting Board Members
• You don’t have to give any money or fundraise if you’re not comfortable with that.
• We’ll take as much of your time as you can spare.
If we’re honest, we’ve all done it. We’ve waited too long to be strategic about board recruitment. We have wonderful people, but we wonder – why can’t we get a quorum? Why isn’t anyone fully engaging? Why aren’t all of our board members donors?
Your mission is WORTHY of full-on engagement from your board and a true commitment of time, effort, and giving! Organizations who prioritize and spend quality time year-round on recruiting strong and engaged board members are generally more successful in fundraising and fulfilling their overall mission objectives.
The good news? There is a way to strategically recruit board members.
There is also a better way to engage and bring your board members into your mission, and it is not a quick 2-hours session of your board manual or policies and procedures. Join us as we teach you how you can build recruiting and orienting board members into your organization’s philanthropic culture.
