How do clients become leaders on their boards? The voices of client board members are extremely important! How do we change the culture of our boards? In this session you will hear from a team that explains not only the importance of having a client member on the board, but in an executive position on the board. You will explore the steps to become an integral part of the board, make important changes for your organization, and learn how to communicate with your board as well as donors. Our panelists are veterans at identifying and assisting change within a program. One step forward is a change for those we represent!
