It’s no secret there are great nonprofits doing great work every day in Essex County. That's why a collaborative Team comprised of Jay Caporale, executive vice president and director of philanthropy at ECCF, Laurie J. LaChapelle, director of planning & institutional research at North Shore Community College, and Dan Bakinowski, tax attorney, Ed.D. candidate at Endicott College, has come together to explore how better to serve nonprofit organizations, making their leadership—and Essex County—even stronger.
The Essex County Governance Survey Team has created a first of its kind 5-minute survey for leaders to help better understand the state of nonprofit governance here. Board members and executive directors are encouraged to click on the “Essex County Governance Survey” link to complete the short survey. Each perspective will provide crucial guidance about how area boards and staff are working together to serve clients and communities. With such input, ECCF will design more relevant workshops at the Institute for Trustees and the Center for Nonprofit Excellence.
In fact, we hope you’ll join us at the 2015 Institute for Trustees, March 28, at Pingree School, when the Team announce the results of this important survey.Your insights and good work in Essex County are much appreciated, and your leadership is essential in creating effective governance strategies so everyone benefits.
