Badass Your Board Development Workshop
The road to revitalization failure is paved with good intentions. We make the mistake of believing we have to ask less of volunteers in hopes of attracting a larger pool. This is the quickest way to ensure a board built on apathy. Revitalization is the most important thing we can do for our communities and therefore we must demand so much more from our volunteers. We must build a badass board from the best and the brightest. We must become a community of do’ers. By evaluating board roles and responsibilities and developing a new set of expectations, we will set appropriate standards that meet the high expectation your mission demands.
