The chief executive-board chair leadership pair drives a nonprofit’s success—or not. When their working relationship is good, both parties are free to lead their colleagues toward mission impact and enjoy their work. When it is poor, progress stagnates as the chief executive waits for relief and the board chair casts about ineffectively.

In this session based on his book Better Together, John Fulwider shows how nonprofit chief executives and board chairs can build strong leadership partnerships so:

  • They're both happier and more fulfilled
  • The organization achieves more for the mission
  • Fundraising, board and staff engagement, and program performance all improve
