Greetings <<First Name>>
I‘m thrilled to share with you news about a very big and exciting project that I have been working on over the past few years.
As you already know, I have helped nonprofit boards of directors for close to four decades. I have worked with small organizations, big organizations and everything in between, and there is one thing that I have run into time and time again:
Nonprofit organizations struggle to make a significant difference in their communities, meet their goals and deliver on their mission statements.
I’ve spent a lot of time contemplating why it is so difficult for many organizations to get traction on what is most important to them.
I know that all board members are dedicated and well-intentioned. Yet, being an exceptional board member who contributes to a thriving and mission-driven organization takes specialized skills, knowledge, and abilities. The critical factor in being an exceptional organization lies in the training of the board of directors.
I started to offer live board development workshops in 2013. They were well received. Attendees reported that after this training, their organizations worked well, meetings were efficient, and they had good experiences.
However, offering live workshops wasn’t the answer to creating exceptionally high functioning board teams. Workshops took a lot of time away from directors’ busy lives and not every director could attend. I went back to the drawing board to see what might work so that nonprofits could be extraordinary in what they offered.
I am so thrilled to announce that Becker Associates has created the Canadian Nonprofit Academy
, an online training, and learning portal for Canadian nonprofits. The academy is an online customizable and innovative board development and governance training program focusing on delivering high quality and accessible board training that includes a dedicated governance coach/consultant.
This program is unique in Canada and I can't wait to tell you more about it. Watch your email for more information in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, if you would like to learn more about how you can engage your volunteers, energize your vision and inspire action, drop me an email or give me a call to book some time with me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best
