Board Leadership Summits

Focusing on Board Governance: Using the Leadership Lens

Nonprofit board members know their job is to govern. But high-performing boards provide leadership as well as governance. 

Using a framework of leadership centered on vision, inspiration, and empowerment, board leaders will be inspired and challenged to see their governance role from a new perspective.
