NYN Media Nonprofit Checkup

Effective Nonprofit Leadership and the Return to Work

Nonprofits are under intense stress at the moment.  They are being asked to “get back to normal” while figuring out Covid protocols, dealing with the needs of staff and clients, and navigating a challenging and constantly changing fundraising climate.  In this environment, it is essential that staff and board leadership be on the same page.  How do you make this happen given all the stresses of the moment?  How do you ensure effective board governance during a pandemic?  What kinds of checks and balances need to be in place for nonprofits not just to survive but to thrive in the months ahead?  This panel would wrestle with these questions and more.
