Board Governance: Recruitment (July 7, 2020)
Presenter: Susan Weinrich, Vice President of Organizational and Community Development, New York Council of Nonprofits
Board leadership and engagement isn’t happened upon through luck, nor is it something to be taken for granted. Board building should be an ongoing process with year-round activities and clear strategic goals. In this session we will explore board recruitment, engagement, and assessment, strategies, and identify and recognize what motivates board members to excel in their roles.

Board Governance: Membership Program Revitalization (July 21, 2020)
Presenter: Andrew Marietta, Vice President of Regional Development, New York Council of Nonprofits
Membership programs can offer plenty of benefits to organizations, however, it can be more difficult to build a thriving membership program than many nonprofits expect. This presentation will cover steps organizations can take to revitalize their membership programs, including understanding the value of a membership program; surveying the membership on their engagement; reviewing and reenergizing membership benefits; and rethinking the membership relationship from a transaction for benefits to an investment and partnership.
