Meaningful Engagement, Part 6 of 6

Wed Jul 13th, 9am-11am

Most people join boards to make a difference.  Meaningful board engagement often results from working at strategic and visionary levels for the purposes of helping the organization sort through challenging issues and set a course of the future.

In this culminating session, participants will learn how to apply three levels of board thinking in order to develop the knowledge of where an organization is headed and how it will get there.

Board Boot Camp was developed in partnership with Leadership Omaha, Omaha Community Foundation, Nonprofit Association of the Midlands, UNO’s College of Public Affairs and Community Service, United Way of the Midlands and the Women’s Fund of Omaha.
