Strong board leadership is not just about checks and balances; it is about creating the circumstances that will allow the missions of strong nonprofit organizations to be achieved. Nonprofit board members are the community leaders that decision makers need to hear from to ensure progress can be made. Board members serve as powerful champions and can bridge differences in opinion, turn ideas into solutions, and make positive change happen.
Please join us for a conversation around a new national campaign entitled Stand for Your Mission on how advocacy can enhance your role as a board member for a nonprofit organization. The Campion Foundation, in partnership with BoardSource, is leading the charge to change the culture of board rooms to include this critical piece of the puzzle.
In this session, attendees will learn:
- What is advocacy and why it matters
- How to begin a conversation around advocacy in the board room
- Tools available to boards looking to expand their participation in advocacy
Sonya Campion, trustee of the Campion Foundation and 26 year veteran of nonprofit fundraising, will lead a discussion on why this is important and why funders should look for advocacy in the organizations they partner with.
WWF members and guests welcome! Please register if you plan to attend.
