Having the right people at the board table is an important element in board excellence. The ability for a new board member to gain the confidence and knowledge to participate in important discussions is related to how they are recruited and oriented to the nonprofit and its board culture. In this workshop, participants will discuss board recruiting and onboarding processes that can stimulate engagement, not only for new Directors, but with tenured board members as well.
Instructor: Sheila Bravo
Sheila Bravo joined the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement, or DANA, as President and CEO in September last year. She previously served as Executive Director of the Rehoboth Art League. Prior to that, she provided board training, strategic planning, new product development and marketing consulting to small businesses and nonprofits. She began her career in advertising, then in leadership positions for global consumer brands. Throughout her time, she was an active volunteer, and valued the passion and purpose of the many nonprofits in which she worked. Her interests led her to pursue a doctorate in organizational leadership, specializing in non-profit governance. Her dissertation on factors that influence nonprofit board member engagement was the first of its kind to study this subject with Delaware nonprofits Boards.
