Engaging your Board – Jennifer Moriarty

September 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


One of the most important responsibilities of a board is to ensure that it continually adds qualified new members to its roster and keeps them engaged. Board building and best practices in governance is an ongoing process that requires deliberate and thoughtful attention. This workshop guides participants through a process that focuses on the different steps needed to build an effective board and presents background information on committees and board structures and answers common questions about governance models and board engagement.


  • Understand the steps to finding, recruiting, and engaging nonprofit board members to increase board capacity and effectiveness.
  • Gather ideas for improving the effectiveness and composition of the board to reflect the community and constituency served.
  • Learn that there are a variety of ways to organize a board, and to articulate why there is no “right” governance model for all boards.
  • Understand how meeting tools such as dashboards and consent agendas can help to avoid common board meeting problems and increase engagement.

Who should attend: Nonprofit Management Program participants, board members, nonprofit staff and volunteers and those interested in learning more about board building and engagement.
