Webinar: The Pivotal Role of the Nonprofit Board Chair

Most of us understand the importance of the board chair’s role in facilitating meetings and setting agendas. Though these functions are incredibly important, the chair’s role goes beyond these critical elements to a much greater scope of influence. 
BoardSource’s 2017 Leading with Intent study shows us the impact of the board chair on board culture, the board’s ability to work as a collaborative team, and even the chief executive’s level of job satisfaction. Using research and vivid examples from practice, this webinar will discuss the board chair persona and its effects, on providing guidance to board chairs, prospective board chairs, and executives about what the role requires for optimal effectiveness. 
In this webinar, Anne Wallestad, CEO of BoardSource, and Vernetta Walker, BoardSource’s Chief Governance Officer and Vice President of Programs will delve into the findings from Leading with Intent and share tips for creating a constructive partnership with the executive and helping develop a strong board culture.
