Brass Tacks for Nonprofit Board Members

March 11 at 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Free

Presented by Ted Ladd, PhD

Jackson Hole is home to some of the most qualified and desirable nonprofit board members in the country. Paradoxically, some of the traits that lead someone to join a nonprofit board can undermine their success on that board. Passion, advocacy, management experience, philanthropy, and conviction can cause board members to micro-manage instead of govern, to dream instead of stabilize, to fracture instead of unify. Through discussion and examples, this session will build board members’ skills and optimal practices, as well as flag seductive but unproductive distractions.

Ted Ladd is a long-time local board member – nine years on the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole board, 16 years on the Lower Valley Energy board, and six years on the Wyoming Business Council. By his own admission, he has made many of the mistakes that will be discussed in the session. Dr. Ladd is Dean of the Hult International Business School in San Francisco and an instructor of entrepreneurship at Harvard University. His research and teaching focus on the best way for teams maximize their success at designing and refining new business innovations.

Registration closes on March 11 at noon. Zoom information will be sent to registered participants.
