Preparing for Organizational Perpetuity: Board Governance, Fundraising and Leadership

Join Us For A One-Day
Standards and Practices Curriculum Training

Wednesday, May 6, 2009
Bloomington, Indiana


A good board is the cornerstone of a successful land trust.  How do you know if your board measures up?

This one day training for land trusts and other conservation professionals covers the key aspects necessary to build strong organizational leadership on the board level, as well as insights as to how to enhance fundraising in a recession. 

Example topics include the link between a strong board and conservation success; the ethical and fiduciary responsibilities of the board; and the roles and responsibilities of individual board members and committees. Join our trainer, Judy Anderson of Community Consultants, to gain information that you can immediately use to strengthen the effectiveness of your board operations and position your organization for long-term success.You will receive practical advice on how to ensure that everyone is part of the fundraising effort and how to build your organizational membership program.

This training is co-sponsored by the Indiana Land Protection Alliance (ILPA) as part of their quarterly state meeting of Indiana land trusts.  ILPA has graciously agreed to open up the training portion of their state meeting to land trusts and other conservation organizations in neighboring states.

 There are no pre-requisites for this training, and it is intended for all levels.  Land trust board members, as well as other volunteers and staff who are involved in helping build and support the board of directors, will all benefit from this training.

Registration has closed. We will be accepting walk-ins.
