Building the Board that Understands and Assures Perpetuity  

Led by Sharon Danosky 

Thursday, June 30

Time:  1:00 – 2:30pm

RSVP Required:  abpaterson@ctconservation.org

Strong and engaged boards are going to be key for the leadership of tomorrow’s land trusts.  Yet land trust board members often struggle to figure out their role on the board; how their board can become stronger; if and when to bring on staff; and how they can build a board that can govern on an on-going basis when members are coming and going … or don’t ever leave!

Learning how to become a stronger, more purposeful board will help your board members become more excited about their participation in the land trust and more effective in the work that matters now and for the future of the land trust.  As a BoardSource Certified Governance Trainer, Sharon will lead an interactive session that focuses on self-reflection that can set you and your board on a path to a more constructive partnership. 

There is no charge for participation in this webinar.  RSVP is required:  abpaterson@ctconservation.org
