We have all found ourselves in more virtual meetings this past year than we have probably encountered in our entire lives thus far. What once seemed to be the exception is becoming more of a norm. However, just because we are holding and participating in more virtual meetings doesn’t mean they are getting better or easier. Virtual meetings require a different set of tools and strategies to be successful. This session will model the use of tools to create effective and engaging virtual meetings, provide you with some strategies and best practices, and address frequently asked questions about managing virtual meetings. You will leave this session with tools and tips that you can implement immediately to take your virtual meetings to the next level.

This pacesetter meeting will be an open forum.  Wendy Thomas, chair, will send a Doodle Poll soon to gather interest.

Diversity, inclusion, and equity are increasingly at the forefront of conversations throughout our communities. As strategic leaders and as the decision-making body at the highest level, nonprofit boards have a responsibility to diversify their composition, create an inclusive culture, and be equity-focused in how they see their work (and the world.)  

Jim Taylor (VP of Leadership Innovation, BoardSource) will discuss the importance of DEI to our missions and current national data on nonprofit board diversity.   Taylor will provide critical steps that boards can take (regardless of where they are in their racial equity journeys) to become more impactful through a more significant commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Participants were forgiving when the pandemic began and events quickly shifted online, but now they realize that “bad Zoom” is the cause of their “Zoom fatigue.” It’s time to think differently. Instead of trying to replicate in-person events, let’s reimagine them to meet the needs of participants. We invited Robbie Samuels to share his personal evolution from speaking on stage to online. He’s a virtual event design consultant and executive Zoom producer who has hosted or presented at nearly 100 virtual events, including a weekly #NoMoreBadZoom Virtual Happy Hour he’s hosted since March 13, 2020.  He will share:
  • The ingredients and skills necessary for designing an engaging online experience.
  • The importance of identifying the purpose of your event. 
  • What it means to think cinematic rather than theatrical.
  • Why it is important to get 5% better every time you host or present an online event.
Attend this session and you’ll receive Robbie’s #NoMoreBadZoom Settings Checklist so you’re ready to try out the techniques he shares.

Robbie has been certified as a virtual presenter and virtual convener. Through The 5% Advantage Program, he helps presenters grow in their confidence with Zoom, online facilitation, and virtual event design so they can reduce their tech angst and host more engaging online experiences. Participants of this 4-week training are eligible to become Certified Virtual Event Professionals #NoMoreBadZoom.

Companies recognize the fundamental value of developing talent, advancing racial diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and finding innovative solutions to social, economic, and environmental challenges. At the same time, nonprofits require highly effective boards to strategically and financially achieve their more significant potential. So here is the great opportunity: for business people to serve on nonprofit boards, including with a clear understanding of how they can have a meaningful impact. Our studies show the benefits of nonprofit board service to companies, employees, nonprofits, and communities, including advancing racial equity fundamental to success.  

Join Alice Korngold to learn how companies and nonprofits can grow value by advancing DEI and effective nonprofit board service.  Alice's organization has trained and matched over one thousand business executives to nonprofit boards worldwide, consulted hundreds of boards, and advised companies on ESG (environment, social, and governance). She speaks at global meetings, including the United Nations.
