With temperatures dropping, rivers freezing, and snow falling it’s that time of year again to stay warm! It’s also a good time to start thinking about a board retreat to re-energize your board members for 2013. So we invite the Fort Wayne non-profit community to join us for an opportunity to escape the cold as we turn up the heat on “Planning an Effective Board Retreat”.
- Choosing a Topic or Theme
- Expectations of the Board, Staff, and Stakeholders
- Choosing a Location: On or Off-Site?
- Measuring Success: Setting Outcome Goals
Whether your organization has employed board retreats for a long time or your organization is putting one together for the first time, this is a great opportunity to share and/or learn about ideas from non-profit leaders.
Thursday January 31, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM EST
Don Chavas’ Mexican Restaurant
1234 North Wells Street
Who should attend?
Successful retreat planning requires collaboration between both Executive Director and Board Members so this discussion would be appropriate for:
- Executive Directors
- Board Chairs
- Governance Committee Chairs
- Other Board Members
The cost of the event is $10 per person and the discussion will be led by non-profit consultant, Linda Buskirk of Buskirk Solutions. Any food or beverage is the responsibility of the attendee.
