Jimmy Larose A Board That Works for You

June 3, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this event, Jimmy Larose will discuss what the role of a board should be, how much involvement should they have in the day-to-day decisions for the organization, should volunteer boards (who have no experience in fundraising) be asked to raise funds, and what is the best use of your boards time and resources?

As Jimmy says, “By the way, great leaders are not “managed” in the first place! Furthermore, it doesn’t matter how big or small the organization may be (e.g. major universities vs. the local animal rescue) boards don’t work and never will because…THEY’RE MADE UP OF VOLUNTEERS WHO HAVE A LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF NONPROFIT ENTERPRISE… Don’t kid yourself! Successful nonprofits are not run by boards; they’re run by strong CEOs, in spite of the board. Another way to look at it goes something like this…what would GE, Apple, or Amazon look like today if they had been managed by a disengaged volunteer board of directors?”

Many of Jimmy’s statements are considered outlandish by others in the nonprofit world. However, his success speaks for itself. Please, take time to listen to Jimmy explain how a successful a well stocked board can be to your organization.
