September - December Training Opportunities

Board Recruitment & Orientation
Tuesday, October 4th, 2016
11:00 am 2:00 pm
The Crawfordsville Country Club
3272 W. Country Club Road
Crawfordsville, IN 47933
Presented by: Vicki Clark

Part of the Putnam & Montgomery Nonprofit Learning Series: Need help recruiting? This workshop will help you first identify what skills you need on your board, and how to recruit with the needs of your organization in mind. Not all boards need the token “lawyer, banker, and CPA”, yet many of us have served on boards where this misnomer has been the extent of our board skill diversity and recruiting plan. Find out who makes the best board members based on the needs defined on your strategic plan, and how you can get them “on board”. This workshop will also go over the basics of a solid board orientation, so that clear expectations and roles are presented. When we begin with a culture of high expectation, we have more informed, high performing board members.
$15.00, if registered one week in advance; $25.00 at the door (includes lunch)

A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. The servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible.  Session also includes a discussion of the servant leadership approach vs traditional hierarchical leadership in organizations.
