Organization & Board Development

Strong, organized and efficient boards and staff are integral to any organization. Community Development works with board members and staff teams of organizations to help them find ways of working more effectively and efficiently.

Email the Community Development facilitators for assistance with information, resources or personalized workshops that fit the diverse needs and schedule of your board and staff.

The topics we cover include and are not limited to:

  • Developing and working with your bylaws
  • Assisting with incorporation
  • Strategic planning, prioritizing and planning for the future
  • Planning and conducting effective meetings
  • Developing clear board and staff roles and responsibilities
  • Recruiting new volunteers to the Board, including training and orientation

We are committed to helping you clarify the issues and find workable solutions that fit your board and situation.
