Boards with Brains

Boards with Brains logo

SVP Boulder County believes strong nonprofits deliver better results. For our nonprofits to be wildly successful, we believe strong leaders – both staff and board – help create adept organizations.

Our Boards with Brains professional development series was designed with that in mind. We’ve got a variety of nonprofit leadership topics, as well as ‘tracks’ and levels to help attendees identify which sessions suit them best.

Find the 2017 Boards with Brains roster below. Click through to each session’s unique Eventbrite page to find out what’ll be covered and get signed up to attend:

  • Leadership 201: “Turning the Table on Tension: Addressing Board Conflicts in Mission Productive Ways” with Kara Penn, on Friday November 3 2017 @ 11:00-1:00pm. Details at https://bwb2017conflict.eventbrite.com

Boards with Brains sessions are open to everyone, whether or not you have an SVP affiliation; if you find the topic relevant, you’re welcome to attend. Boards with Brains sessions are designed for nonprofit Board and staff leaders, and we invite you to join in teams to help build alignment around leadership best practices within your organization.

Our per-session fee is a below-market $40. Individuals or organizations can purchase a transferable, 8-punch pass (giving you a $10 discount on each ticket), and, each session also includes a limited number of scholarship slots (to note, direct service nonprofits with a budget of $1.5m or less are eligible for SVP scholarships).

In response to the needs of the Boulder County nonprofit community, we’ve designed this series to help move the needle. Though SVP’s costs are over $100/attendee per session to host each training, we choose to offer the series at a reduced rate to make more accessible what so often is an elusive need.  SVP charges for Boards with Brains, but the cost is significantly reduced from the regional range of between $75-250 for comparable two hour trainings.

Sign up to get invites delivered directly to your inbox using the Connect with SVP widget on the left side of this page, and email Olga for help purchasing an 8-punch pass or details on scholarships.
