"You never get a second chance to make a first impression" is a saying that really applies to orienting Board members. It may seem self-evident that an effective orientation of Board members is essential to successful governance, but experience indicates that many Boards could do a much better job.

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • Why Board orientation is so critical to governance effectiveness
  • Who is responsible for Board orientation
  • What an orientation process should cover
  • What materials and resources to provide Board members
  • The role of orientation in the Board development cycle
  • Sharing experiences of poor Board orientation

Facilitator: Jody Orr, The Chrysalis Group, has an extensive background working in and with the nonprofit sector, a Master’s degree in Sociology, and is a founding principal in a community development consulting firm.

Jody was the lead staff person in two large social planning organizations and a major United Way, and has been a Board member and President of a variety of nonprofits.
