The Evanston Community Foundation is presenting the workshop, Practical Steps to Building a High-Impact Board, on Thursday, June 10

The workshop will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Evanston/Skokie School District 65 Board Room, 1500 McDaniel Ave..

The workshop will focus on building an effective, diverse and balanced non-profit board. Participants will learn how to identify, recruit, cultivate and engage new board members with the experience and skill sets an organization needs to fulfill its mission. The workshop is ideal for non-profit board members, executive directors and other staff members working on board development.

The workshop will be facilitated by Robert Alpaugh, Senior Consultant with Campbell & Company, who brings more than 20 years of experience in the non-profit sector, including work in fundraising, board development and engagement, governance, strategic planning, organizational structure and capacity building.

Mr. Alpaugh will be joined by a panel of two non-profit leaders, Ra Joy and Karen Singer.

As Executive Director of Arts Alliance Illinois, one of the premier statewide advocacy organizations in the nation, Joy has been a forceful advocate for pro-arts policies at the local, state and federal levels and civic engagement in communities across Illinois.

Singer has spent her career working to improve the lives of women and children and helping build the capacity of organizations to meet the needs of those they serve. Under her leadership, the YWCA Evanston/North Shore has grown significantly in the areas of board development and engagement, community visibility, fundraising and program development.

The cost of the workshop is $30 per person, which will include a light supper. Register online by June 4. For more information, call 847-492-0990 or e-mail [email protected]
