NYN Media's 2nd Annual Nonprofit BoardCon




January 24, 2018 – Museum of Jewish Heritage

8:00am – 5:00pm


For most nonprofits, fiscal, operational and most other responsibility is enacted through a collaborative effort that involves its Board of Directors, the Executive Director and a senior officer. For a board to successfully use its function, it must be fully informed and fully engaged with the organization’s operations. Ultimately, the board is responsible for the governance of an organization, and the board will not be able to fulfill its obligations without proper information.



Discussions to include:

·         Board Responsibilities: Checklist and Toolkit  

·         Importance of Collaboration between Staff and Board

·         Best practices for the recruitment and retention of millennial board leaders

·         Diversity & Inclusion in the Boardroom

·         Governance Practices and Fiduciary Responsibility

·         Maximizing Board and Staff’s Time to Increase Impact

·         Assessing Board Performance

·         Keeping the Board Informed


Audience:  Board Chairs, Board Members, Chief Executives and other senior executives (COOs, CFOs, CIOs, CMOs and HR Executives) at nonprofits; Advisors who are helping boards expand their impact and improve performance; and other influencers who are helping the nonprofit sector think differently about leadership and governance.
