What happens when a nonprofit's board and staff aren't clear about their roles and responsibilities? Many volunteers may join a nonprofit board without a clear understanding of their roles, which often results in confusion, resentment and disengagement. Furthermore, it can be difficult for a staff leader to provide the essential training that these board members need in order to be productive and comfortable in their legal and fiduciary duties.
Using a football metaphor, "The Invisible Yellow Line™," expert speaker Jean Block, who is an author of several bestselling nonprofit books and manuals, will walk you through the process of outlining and clarifying the primary board and staff roles in key nonprofit management, including finance, governance, human resources, planning and resource development. Even if you're not a football fan, you'll see how using The Invisible Yellow Line™ can stimulate open and honest communication about roles that will lead to a big win for both nonprofit board and staff teams –and your essential mission and purpose will be well-served. This high-energy session is based upon the popular nonprofit manual, "Clarifying Board and Staff Roles: The Invisible Yellow Line™," and is presented by the author.
