Boards of Directors

We support effective nonprofit governance by offering boards of directors the training, coaching and organizational resources they need. Our services to boards include strategic planning, board training and development, and coaching. In addition, we facilitate retreats, collaborations and mergers, and executive searches.

Board Coaching

The Center consultants coach the board chair and the executive to strengthen this vital relationship, while consulting with the full board on working together for greater impact.

Board One-on-One

Customized consulting services delivered at board meetings or full-day retreats. Consulting topics include leadership transition, strategic planning, resource development, strategic alliances, board development and board governance. The Center can also work with specific board committees, such as fundraising, board development, strategic planning and leadership transition.
