Board Day Join us for a daylong conference that empowers boards to think and act boldly to create new possibilities for impact

What is Board Day?

The San Antonio Area Foundation in partnership with the Association of Fundraising Professionals San Antonio Chapter and Masters Leadership Program of Greater San Antonio Alumni Association invite you to Board Day 2020. 

Guest Speaker and Trainer: Dan Pallotta is widely known for his book, “Uncharitable,” that exposes the unjust rules and discriminatory stereotypes society places on charities. His new book, "Charity Case," focuses on the leadership role of a nonprofit board to transform the way boards engage in problem solving. 

Pallotta has created “The Bolder Board Training”, a daylong summit that has trained over 2,000 individuals in 12 cities.  This program goes beyond training in governance and fiduciary responsibilities. It is designed to help boards collaborate with their CEOs to awaken, articulate and create audacious dreams for impact that result in new possibilities for the nonprofit and all those it serves.

The training is specifically designed to: 

  • Enlighten boards about the negative effects of focusing on keeping overhead low
  • Encourage new ways of thinking about obtaining growth capital
  • Transform the board’s willingness to act boldly forever 

This is an interactive workshop requiring engagement and full participation. It’s critical you have key agency and board leadership in attendance. The Bolder Board Training is often a launching pad for strategic planning.  Attendees are encouraged to schedule their strategic planning meetings after the training.
