Is  your board ready to find the sweet spot?

David Allen at 2014 CLCC Annual Conference

This fun and interactive seminar offers a fresh perspective on the job of running a land trust. The underlying context is the need to develop an organization that is sustainable for the long haul and able to protect conservation values in perpetuity. The program is designed for board and staff who are ready to find the sweet spot - where the vision lines up with the conservation, the enthusiasm flows, and each challenge is manageable. Against a framework of the arc of board service - learning/doing/leading - we will offer five outside-the-lines strategies for reorganizing and rejuvenating the board experience to ensure the kind of organization that is needed - in perpetuity. We'll also provide practical, hand-on tools for participants to take back and implement right away, and we'll practice using them.


The Standards & Practices Training Series is presented in partnership with the Land Trust Alliance through the generous support of
the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
