ECCF works to promote local philanthropy and strengthen the nonprofits that provide many of the services we benefit from every day such as cultural events, historical preservation, education, health services, social services, environmental protection and more.
On Saturday, March 26, ECCF will hold the 2nd Annual Essex County Institute for Trustees at the Pingree School in Hamilton to bring together the leadership of many of these organizations to learn, share best practices and bring a sense of community to the nonprofit sector in Essex County.
This conference will be an opportunity for board members and executive directors to spend a day with their colleagues who are experiencing the same challenges, opportunities and successes associated with the leadership of nonprofit organizations. This conference will reinforce and enhance the steps needed to build a cohesive and effective board.
Attendees can expect to take away from the conference:
- A better understanding of the role of trustee of a nonprofit organization
- New pathways to success for your organization
- A resource guide containing presentations and additional information on board leadership
- Counsel from leaders in the field of nonprofit governance
- Connections to other Essex County nonprofits
Last year, more than 300 individuals attended the Institute for Trustees and the response was outstanding. Said one attendee, "My colleagues and I were filled with ideas and inspiration to help move our program up a notch in the coming year. To say nothing of gaining a sense of real citizenship in the Essex County public charities community."
