Pre-Conference Session: The Next Generation of Board Games
The success of any organization is based on how well they plan for the future. How can arts and cultural institutions attract, retain, and engage emerging professionals as board members to carry on the mission? What is keeping Directors/Trustees from inviting younger members into their board rooms and expanding the pool of resources to the next generation? These questions require thought, strategy, the right pieces, and a view of the big picture – just like those classic board games from our childhood. This workshop will explore tools, tips, and board experiences as the ingredients to consider what makes you or can make you a more attractive emerging professional for a profile board in your community.
