Anna E. Greenberg Board Leadership Event: The Board's Role in Organizational Resilience

Many organizations are reeling from the pandemic’s effect on their operations and attempting to navigate the still-shifting sands underneath them. Having to exert such focus on recovery can divert attention away from important board basics, which must still be tended so as not to lose ground. This conversation will surface best practices of nonprofit boards in steady-state operations as well as explore how the role of the board may be different when the organization is emerging from a crisis. Our facilitators will discuss common board building-blocks that support organizational resilience as well as address your specific challenges and questions.

This event is for nonprofit executives, fund development professionals and board members.

Registration is required and limited to 60 participants. Please contact Damika Baker-Wilson, Director of Development, with questions at

Coffee and Continental Breakfast will be provided.
