One of the biggest challenges in nonprofits is getting your board to take their role seriously.
This means 1) attendance 2) due diligence, and 3) fundraising. Yet so many boards struggle with this.
Board members “own” the nonprofit in the eyes of the law, but they usually don’t even work there. In addition, most boards don't get the orientation and training they need to be successful. This can cause a disconnect and dysfunction.
Enter...the “Board Agreement” – the single most powerful tool you can use in getting your board to perform
In this training, I show you the powerful and simple elements that are fundamental to building a rockstar board. If you attend live, you will get a free sample board agreement.
In less than an hour, you’ll be able to:
•enforce the agreement

Hi, I’m Sean, and I'm the Nonprofit Fixer!
I’ve worked in nonprofit organizations since I was 16 (over 28 years).
I love nonprofits. I study nonprofits. I also lead and fix nonprofits. Whether its local, state or national - or charitable or political – I have helped grow and develop organizations of all kinds. I've served as an Executive Director for 5 organizations. I am a coach and consultant for boards, executive directors and activists of all stripes. I’ve worked in communications, victim services, civil rights, environment, policy, bullying prevention, lobbying, management and much more.
I learned how to run a nonprofit the hard way – by watching someone do it poorly. I’ve also been thrown into the deep end and told to sink or swim. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else, so I have made it a commitment to my business to train people how to effectively fundraise and manage organizations for maximum impact. I’m nationally known and respected, and I’m a really swell guy (just wait, you’ll see!).
Best of all, I cut through the BS. My tools and trainings are straight-to-the-point, immediately useful, and chock-full of tips and tactics you can start using today.
