It’s 6:30 pm. You’ve been up since 6:00 am and have just put in a full day at work. Your head and stomach are telling you it’s time for dinner. And you’re still sitting in a not-for-profit board meeting that started at 4:30 … which was supposed to wrap up at 5:45 pm. Suddenly, you hear, “I nominate [your name] for Board Chair”. What?!

Maybe your appointment as Chair of your favourite not-for-profit wasn’t quite so dramatic. Maybe you were one of the lucky ones that served as Vice-Chair for a term before becoming Chair. Even so, most future Chairs of not-for-profit Boards are not prepared (read: groomed) to take over the leadership position.

Board Boot Camp 201 will give you a quick primer and overview to become the best leader you can be for your not-for-profit organization. Learn effective qualities of leaders and your personal leadership style. Understand the separation between the Board and staff, and between the senior staff and the Chair. Find how to run your meetings timely and effectively – one of the best ways to retain current directors and attract new ones! And, when you think you or your organization might need outside help, explore the circumstances when going outside for expertise is of benefit to your organization.


The Organization Workshop

KCR Community Resources - The Organization Workshop

Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Location: Kelowna Community Theatre, 1375 Water Street, Kelowna
Cost: $35 – includes refreshments & lunch
Register Now

The Organization Workshop is a dynamic, full-day experiential workshop where participants:

  • Focus on improving systemic conditions rather than fixing people.
  • Identify predictable, dysfunctional patterns and how to avoid them.
  • Deal with the underlying issues standing in the way of success.
  • Gain an appreciation for the difficult issues people deal with at all levels of the organization.
  • Learn strategies for building successful partnerships that make successful organizations.

This amazing workshop is available to non-profit and volunteer organizations at a steeply reduced rate, thanks to the sponsorship of the City of Kelowna and the philanthropic commitment of Karen Bowen.

With over 20 years’ experience, Karen Bowen of ManagerKnowHow supports organizations and teams through comprehensive leadership curriculum and interventional organizational development services.
