Can you really afford to waste any more time in board meetings?

The IMPACT retreat will make your nonprofit more effective while finally making the job of a board member crystal clear!

Walkthrough and Q&A for the IMPACT Retreat

UPDATE: NEW date... Nov. 5th

from the comfort of your virtual office.

Does this sound all too familiar?

As a CEO...

Most of your time in board meetings is spent feeling anxious.

The board approves the budget and often goes too in the weeds on individual line items.

We have a hard time knowing what level of detail to communicate to the board in our board meetings.

Board meetings make us all feel like we have to walk on eggshells.

Our board members are wildly smart professionals with great expertise to lean on, but they don’t understand the day-to-day operations of running our nonprofit.

We are not tapping into the real expertise of our board, because we don’t understand what their role should be.

As a Board Member…

We have no time to dream as a board about the real impact we are having.

We are not always clear on how we can best help our organization.

We are not properly trained on how to impact fundraising within our board position.

We do not understand the operational role of a board member.

We spend time in meetings, walk away, and do not often feel clear on what to do next before the next board meeting.

You're NOT Alone!

This is common and typical for MOST nonprofits.

If you are a nonprofit CEO or board member and you said "Yes, that is us" next to any of the items listed above, we are here to say this:

We have your back!

Many nonprofit CEOs and board members feel confused about the role of a board.

Many nonprofit CEOs and board members lack systems and processes to work effectively and efficiently.

We are passionate about YOUR impact.

We are here to help you develop the systems and relationships needed to create momentum within your board that will serve your mission with the greatest impact.

We have the system to help you pivot and get pointed in the right direction so that you can spend the time with your board dreaming big dreams about impact and collaborating in ways that will allow you to run your organization effectively.

What you will walk away with after the 1-day IMPACT Retreat

A radically simple new way of defining the roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit board

A method and process for implementing efficient and effective communication with your board

The roadmap to a beautiful and healthy relationship with your board

A framework for involving your board in fundraising, budgets and the operational aspects of your nonprofit

A light at the end of the tunnel that will lead your nonprofit to ultimate IMPACT potential

Who should attend the 1-day IMPACT retreat, and how will this work as a virtual event?

If you want to affect real change within your organization, we recommend that the CEO and the entire board attend this virtual retreat together.

The retreat will include a mixture of lectures and breakout sessions throughout the day. We will teach you the methodologies of building IMPACTFUL boards and then we will break out into discussion workshops and sessions throughout the day.


The price for the retreat includes a seat at the table for each and every board member to attend.

Build the IMPACT Board of your dreams

After attending the IMPACT retreat, you will spend less time “managing” your board and more time having real IMPACT with your board.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It...

Here is what people are saying about how we did it for them.

Luke Keen

Board Member, StepOut VT

"DO IT!"

Lauren Friedman

Executive Director, pkDO

"In one day that you will learn so much! It gives peace of mind, takes out some of the guesswork, and really instills good practices for everyone to follow, as well as motivation to keep improving."

Board Member

"When I signed up to do this today. I was like, okay, I'll do it. I'll probably sit in on about an hour of this and then I'm going to go on with my happy day. And… I stayed for every minute of it and I think that it was incredibly impactful."

Victoria Baker

Nonprofit Founder

"This is a one time investment that will guide your course, whereas poor decisions can create ongoing losses that repeat and multiply challenges."
