Imagine your board fully engaged in Advancement as a true partner. What would it take to maximise your board’s full potential? Nick Jaffer, President & CEO (Asia Pacific) for Global Philanthropic, will share strategies and tactics to turn your board into true champions in his presentation, Getting Your Board Onboard.
The theme for this year’s Educate Plus VIC/TAS Chapter Conference is G.R.O.W.: Generate, Review, Organise and Wellbeing. And GROW is precisely what you’ll do with a board that actively partners in driving and nurturing your philanthropic culture. Attend Nick Jaffer’s session to find out more about Getting Your Board Onboard.
Getting Your Board Onboard
(Fundraising/Alumni and Community Engagement streams, 10:45am – 11:35am Tuesday 25 June)
Your board should be your chief asset—but board members typically have little experience or interest in Advancement, and thus are reluctant to get involved in engagement and fundraising activities.
Now, imagine your board fully engaged in Advancement as a true partner, working with you and your Head to drive engagement and revenue growth. What would it take to maximise your board’s full potential?
In this session, we’ll learn the board’s perspective, and what it takes to engage and get them onboard. We’ll go beyond just making a gift to mapping out strategies and tactics to develop and deepen their involvement, individually and as a full board, to become true champions and achieve ever-greater revenue and impact goals.
