Ahead of the Curve Board Chair & CEO Retreat - Sold Out

8:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. 1/28/2019
Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida

*This event is Sold Out. Please visit our Ahead of the Curve Board Series page to learn about additional Board Chair & CEO programming.

The Board Chair and Executive relationship is the cornerstone of a strong leadership team. The Nonprofit Center created this day-long opportunity for CEOs and Board Chairs based on years of experience and feedback from leaders. By keeping the numbers low (limited to 12 organizational teams), we can provide an intensive series of learning, planning, and sharing exercises targeting the most important areas for leadership impact. Co-facilitated by Nonprofit Center CEO Rena Coughlin and BoardSource Senior Consultant Jim Schwarz, the day provides time for lecture, break out discussions, group interactions, and individual team planning. In addition, you’ll have time to get to know the “co-pilot” of your nonprofit, enjoy delicious food, and meet new peers.

A one-day investment can yield a more effective, collaborative and trusting relationship between the leaders, improving the impact on their organizations.

*We have noted that some organizations would prefer to register a group of 3 (including CEO, current Chair, and an incoming Chair) if you would like to have a group of 3 attend, the cost is $600.
