The Chamber’s Nonprofit Committee, in partnership with the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, Governance Matters—an affiliate of the New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON), and the Dyson Foundation will present Bridges to Board Service: Making our community stronger through exceptional nonprofit board service. Sessions will provide board members with a critical orientation on the responsibilities, knowledge, and skills needed to be an effective board member.
Resource Development for Nonprofit Boards
One important but sometimes misunderstood area of board responsibility is to ensure that the organization has the financial, human, and other resources it needs to carry out its mission and achieve its goals. The specific nature of how this is done varies according to the organization’s business model, culture, structure, and organizational capacity. This session will provide an overview of how board members can foster a pro-active approach to financial resource development that includes policy making, planning, fundraising, and strategy development. We will also define and explore the various active roles board members can play as donors, ambassadors, advocates, and askers.
Board Service 101 is a prerequisite for taking this session unless you are a graduate of the Leadership Dutchess program offered by the Chamber Foundation.
