Board roundtables


Leading your nonprofit can be rewarding and often challenging as a volunteer board member. Board Roundtables give you dedicated time, without nonprofit staff members present, to ask questions and discuss topics critical to effective board leadership.



Each free 90-minute session is limited to 25 participants to encourage discussion and the opportunity to connect with other board members. Roundtables begin with a facilitator introducing the topic and sharing best practices based on their experience. Sessions also include small group networking opportunities and plenty of time for participants to ask questions and share challenges and successes, so board members can learn from each other.

Nonprofit staff may encourage their board members to attend. This is a space for volunteer board members only.

“The board roundtables allow questions to come up that individuals as volunteers wouldn’t, or don’t feel like they could, ask their own executive directors. It gives board members another outlet to gather that information.”​
