For all-volunteer nonprofit organizations board members serve governance, staff, and volunteer roles to keep the mission alive and thriving. How can we recognize our successes and creatively face challenges in these leadership positions? There are great rewards that come with serving our passions and inviting others to do the same and with the right tools and knowledge so much more becomes possible. Join Emily Davis as she shares best practices, real life examples, and resources from her first-hand experiences founding and running volunteer nonprofits, many focused on engaging the next generation of leaders.
