How To Build a Board: Free Workshop at Newburyport Bank

Danvers, MA—How do leaders of nonprofits recruit the best match for their boards? And once they do, what are effective ways to engage them so that everyone benefits?

The questions are real for many of the 2,500 nonprofits in Essex County. As a result, the Essex County Community Foundation’s Center for Nonprofit Excellence in partnership with Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank will host a free workshop on board development Wed., June 11 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The workshop, “Recruiting and Building Your Nonprofit Board,” will be held at the bank, 63 State Street in Newburyport, MA. Space is limited and participants may register online at www.eccf.org.

“Every nonprofit business needs purpose, mission and vision,” said Jay Caporale, ECCF executive vice president, who is teaching the workshop. “Every aspect of a great organization revolves around the organization’s mission, including board development. That means recognizing the difference between success and mediocrity while preparing your ‘dream team.’”

Caporale speaks often on the topic of board development and runs an upper level workshop each March at the ECCF’s Institute for Trustees. He joined ECCF in August 2010 after 21 years in national consulting that provided philanthropic counsel to nonprofits. Caporale’s expertise also includes major gifts, capital campaigns, strategic planning, and development office operations.

“This workshop is a great opportunity for nonprofit leaders to explore ideas and best practices that can make them even more effective,” said Timothy Felter, senior vice president/CFO at Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank. “We’re proud to be partnering with ECCF in sponsoring this workshop because we know how essential nonprofits are for enhancing the quality of life where we live.”
