OCCUR Holds “Board Report Card Clinic” for Faith-based Community
OCCUR and The San Francisco Foundation will host their fifth “A Model Built on Faith” Workshop on June 26th at the First Unitarian Church, 685 14th St. in Oakland.
This workshop will focus on “How to Ignite Your Board’s Effectiveness, A Faith and Community Based Approach. “
“Of all the capacity building and technical assistance we have provided over the past 20 or so years, no topic is more critical to an organization’s success than building a solid board of directors that is committed to the mission, the community impact and the on the ground, nitty gritty work of the organization,” says Carmen Bogan, OCCUR program director.
“This is of particular importance to the faith-based community,” she added.
The workshop will help organizations assess where their board needs improvement by examining the unique challenges facing faith-based boards and present specific strategies for moving board members into position to lead with excellence.
Presenters include Carmen Bogan, The Bogan Group; Norina Sharpe, SharpeVision Consulting; Brenda Lynch, Brenda Lynch Consulting; and, Holly Lofgren, Lofgren Consulting. They will give solid direction on how to develop a board to provide dynamic strategic direction, build and maintain strong governance, secure funding for optimal sustainability and manage financial resources.
“The good news is the faith community has an opportunity to have a greater impact than any other organizations,” said Bogan. “Faith leaders in particular need to attend this workshop, and they need to take the information and messaging to heart.”
