The Board-Executive Relationship: A Partnership that Works

The Board-Executive Relationship: A Partnership that Works

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 at 3:00 PM (EDT) to Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 5:00 PM (EDT)

Event Details

This series is hosted in partnership with Nonprofit Association of Washington.

No relationship is more important to the health of your nonprofit than the one between the board and its executive director. A strong and effective relationship sets the stage for organizational success. Yet, probably no other single relationship is as easily misconstrued or has such dire potential consequences. Many boards and executives cannot say with certainty whether they have a good relationship with each other, or even what that relationship should look like.

In this 2-part webinar series, participants will learn:

  • the characteristics of an effective partnership
  • positive ways to strengthen the board-executive relationship
  • how to handle conflict between the board and executive
  • how to promote transparency and accountability
