Governance Webinar 8: The Board/Executive Director Relationship 


For an organization to thrive, board members and executive directors must be on the same page regarding their different roles and expectatiaons. Like an relationship, it takes effort to make it as effective and enjoyable as possible. In this session, we'll share best practices for the relationship as seasoned consultants who've both served as executive directors and as board members, learning lessons of importance in each role.

Co-Presenter: Jonathan Poisner is an independent nonprofit management consultant who helps organizations thrive, with a focus on strategic planning, board governance, and fundraising. He is the author of Why Organizations Thrive: Lessons from the Front Lines for Nonprofit Executive Directors.

Co-Presenter: Cathy Allen is a BoardSource-certified nonprofit governance consultant with a passion for helping volunteer boards of directors understand and embrace their unique role, and organize their work for maximum effectiveness and minimum headache. 

Jonathan and Cathy are pleased to be making these workshops available virtually and at no cost during this time of COVID social distancing.
