Nonprofit Spark – The Effective Nonprofit Board President – 02-14-11
It’s an honor to be a board president but we often take on the role without much training. Listen in to this week’s show for help in being thoughtful about how to run effective board meetings and also, to build good relationships with the executive director and board members. I first speak with a Fergus McCann, the co-chair of the board of Beauty Night, a nonprofit based in Vancouver, British Columbia with a mission to provide marginalized people and youth the tools to make positive lifestyle changes. My second guest is Frank Martinelli, president of The Center for Public Skills Training where he specializes in strategic planning, board development, volunteer management and more.
