  • At your desk!



This is our Webinar Wednesday - 2018 Holiday Edition, fantastic previously-broadcast webinars made available for you! 

Learn new and creative ways to diversify your board while recruiting. Have you thought about adding Self-Advocates to your board but aren't sure how to start?  Lucinda Hurst from the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati will talk about how recruiting and training self-advocates to be on your board as well as the successes and some pitfalls. Melissa Werkman (formerly) from the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan will share a unique idea called Engage (Junior Board) where they recruit young professionals.  Junior Board Members help with fundraising, marketing and other special events.

I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
