Firing Lousy Board Members - And Helping the Others Succeed
Presenter: Simone P. Joyaux, ACFRE
Yes, your organization should fire non-performing board members. Of course, that means you have to define what is good and not so good. And you need ways to fire them that don't cause pain – to them or your organization. Join this workshop to learn the secrets to this tricky business.
And please! Do not decide to "just stick it out" till someone's term expires!
At the conclusion of this session, participants will:
- Understand the distinction between good and not-so-good board member performance.
- Understand how to encourage non-performers to resign.
- Recognize why this matters.
- General audience. Sadly, lots of fundraisers don't want to do this because of money. Lots of EDs are afraid. Etc.
