The Institute for Trustees is an all-day conference for boards of directors, boards of trustees and executive directors of nonprofit organizations. This annual event features presentations from the region's leading experts on board development, financial sustainability, fundraising, strategic planning, board/staff relations and more. The day promotes thought provoking discussion on timely topics facing boards of all sizes and expertise, as well as networking opportunities with hundreds of peers equally committed to their leadership roles.
About The Institute
ECCF believes that a well functioning board is one of the most important assets a nonprofit organization can have. The board provides oversight, sets long term goals, establishes policies, and watches over the finances. After years of providing consulting services to boards and executive directors, ECCF recognized the need for training on a larger scale and in 2010, established the Institute for Trustees. It is an intensive day of training, sharing and networking for board members across the region.
Who Should Attend
The Institute is for board members and executive directors of nonprofit organizations. Executive Directors may attend only if at least one board member from their organization also attends.

The 2013 Institute features 101, 201 and Master level workshops. Level 101 workshops are directed at small and emerging organizations with budgets less than $250,000 and at freshman board members. Level 201 workshops are designed for larger, more seasoned organiza- tions and more experienced board members. Master Classes are two hour in-depth, discussion based sessions with experts on the topic. These classes are intended for experienced board members and executive directors from larger organizations. They may require advanced reading and preparation.
