Panel Discussion
Moderator: Mariam Barnett
Panelists: To be announced 


Have you ever wanted to get the straight scoop on what reallyworks to engage Board members?

As development professionals and nonprofit leaders, we talk amongst ourselves and strive to follow best practices—including ones you may have gleaned from Simone Joyaux’s presentations in February.

These practices fill in part of the picture—but when is the last time you really got to hear about Board engagement straight from the source?

Join us on March 24 for a panel discussion to do just that. Listen to and ask questions of some of Tacoma’s all-star Board members, and find out from their perspective:

  • What works in engaging volunteer leaders in fundraising? What doesn’t?
  • What does a “best” board experience look like?
  • What are the biggest challenges for board members when it comes to fundraising?
  • What does transformative staff support look like?

Whether you attended February’s presentations or not, this panel will offer a fresh perspective and challenge assumptions.

Bring your questions, frustrations and staff perspective, and return to your board members with new insights on their perspective and useful strategies that come straight from the mouths’ of their peers.
