MLP Graduate Class XIV (2018)
The MLP class days are well organized, led by knowledgeable & passionate professionals, full of meaningful content and extremely informative. Even though I have been active in the San Antonio community for many years, I was very surprised by how much I learned about our city through this program.
Our objective is to match our distinguished graduates with complementary organizations, so they can reach their full potential and become pivotal servant-leaders. We prepare graduates to serve the need for strong, competent boards by providing organizations with a pool of candidates who may not be currently in their sights.
To fulfill our goal, the topic of Board Preparation is a day-long class led by acknowledged and experienced experts. Many MLP graduates credit this class, and the experience and knowledge gained in it, as their source of confidence in their respective board roles. Additionally, our Agency Partners fully appreciate and support this class for delivering prepared graduates for their consideration as board members.
Topics included in this class are:
- Best Practices – understanding the relationship between nonprofit boards and staff members
- Understanding Agency Financial and Metric Reporting
- Fiduciary and Legal Responsibilities
- Fundraising and Development
- Defining Effective Board Leadership
- Succession Planning for Board and Executive Staff
- Crisis Management and Communication
Everyone can benefit from strong guidance and instruction on the topic of “Effective Nonprofit Board Leadership,” regardless of whether you’ve had nonprofit or for-profit board experience. We devote a full day to this topic to ensure you are fully equipped and confident in understanding your role as a potential board member.
