A Half Day Session, Lame Pizza and People Leaving Early (a/k/a Not the Best Board Retreat)

Wed, May 18, 2016 3:17 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Come on, if you haven't been to a board retreat that fit all three of those, you are my hero! But let's not give up on board retreats...they can be magical. They can be productive. And they can be orchestrated by YOU.

On May 26, we will be joined by Joan Garry.  She is a leading nonprofit consultant who works with boards and staff members as a strategic advisor, crisis manager, change agent and strategic planner.  She also has a blog for nonprofit leaders at and a podcast on iTunes called Nonprofits Are Messy.  Her webinar topic will be How To Create A Five Star Board Retreat.

Clearly a five star retreat begins with five star board members.  Here are links to a few posts Joan has written on the topic of building a great board.
