Building Your Board from the Bottom Up

Wednesday, February 2, 2022
2:00pm - 3:30pm ET

Format: Online
Location: Zoom
Intended Audience: Representatives from A.R.T./New York member organizations looking to build or expand their boards for the first time.
Participation Level: Medium - A mix of presentation and discussion.

As a 501c3 organization, you are only legally required to supply a minimum of 3 directors for your corporation who are over 18 years of age and who approve an annual budget for the organization. Most organizations grow and thrive by requiring more from these individuals and how they support your mission can vary drastically from company to company. In this workshop, we will discuss how to transition your board into a fundraising role by looking at the different types of boards and board members, how to identify individuals who can fit these types, the best ways to recruit them, and successful methods of board management, engagement and development once they join.
