Leaders join boards with the best of intentions, but a quickly-changing environment (technological, economic, demographic, and political) has greatly complicated the job of both the arts manager and the board member. Given this environment, what is required to build and maintain a truly effective board? Why do certain boards flourish while others stagnate? Why, when facing challenges, do some boards rally while others fragment and fall? How do staff-board teams working in tandem go from “good” to “great”?
In response to these questions, this session led by the DeVos Institute will define the “rules of engagement” between effective staffs and boards, helping participants design a lean, focused and consistent approach to leverage every ounce of goodwill and resource offered on both sides. Ultimately, it will prepare participants to create a disciplined, sustained “culture of philanthropy” that involves each member of the organization.
