Results-Based Accountability-Rutland: 4-Part Training Series
Apr 5 all-day
Results-Based Accountability-Rutland: 4-Part Training Series @ Rutland | Vermont | United States
This four-part, tool-based training series introduces the key components of Results-Based Accountability, with a focus on program performance. No prior experience with RBA is necessary. Each three-hour workshop will introduce a tool or concept and allow ample time for teams to practice and receive feedback. By the end of the series, participants have  walked through the process of embedding RBA into a program. Participants are encouraged to come in organizational teams, including management, staff, and board members, although individuals are welcome to join.
The training is held for four weeks, with about 90 minutes of work expected between trainings. Participants are expected to attend all four trainings. If you have scheduling conflicts, please contact Julie van der Horst Jansen at jjansen@gradschool.marlboro.edu before registering for the workshops.
The four workshops will progress as follows:
Day 1, Wednesday, April 5: 9am – 12pm
We will start with the basics of Results-Based Accountability with an overview explaining the difference between population level accountability and performance level accountability. We will then take a deep dive into performance management, developing RBA grids for participant programs.
Day 2, Wednesday, April 12: 9am – 12pm
The second day is devoted to working with data, identifying the headline measures that you will use to measure progress at your organization or program, and developing data collection strategies.
Day 3, Wednesday, April 19: 9am – 12pm
After two weeks of preparation, teams prepare to start using their data in organizational decision making. The “Turn the Curve” exercise is introduced at the program level. This is a tool-based, hands on workshop introducing the potential of RBA to be used to structure meetings and solve problems.
Day 4, Wednesday, April 26: 9am – 12pm
The series comes to a close and we wrap up by answering lingering questions and discussing a culture of accountability in the work-place and organizational integration of RBA. Links are made to state-wide outcomes and indicators.

CNL 2017 Board Leadership Institute @ Hannah Grimes Center
Apr 22 all-day

The Center for New Leadership is thrilled to announce that the third annual Board Leadership Institute and Get On Board Fellows program will be offered in collaboration with the Hannah Grimes Center in Keene, NH this Spring.

An effective board is critical to the success of any nonprofit. By popular demand, Marlboro is offering its third Board Leadership Institute in the spring of 2017.

The Board Leadership Institute is a collection of workshops that, taken together, introduce board members to the most important knowledge and skills for successful board service. We frequently hear from boards who want help transforming their organizational culture, or that need assistance being effective leaders and champions for the nonprofits they serve. The 2017 series begins on April 22nd. There are two full day workshop on Saturday April 22 and May 13 and five Thursday evening workshops that meet from 6:30-8:30.

For greatest impact on a board as a whole, we highly recommend that a board sign up for the full series as a board team and have steeply discounted this option to make it as affordable as possible. There are also ticket options for individual sitting board members who wish to complete the whole series, and for those who want to attend only a subset of the workshops. If you have questions about which ticket is most appropriate for you or your organization, please contact Kim Lier (klier@gradschool.marlboro.edu). Kim can also arrange for invoice or check payment, if necessary.

The Get On Board Fellows Program gives young people, ages 22-44, the opportunity to build leadership skills and their personal and professional network while preparing to serve their community. Fellows attend the Board Leadership Institute workshops along with board member participants. They also attend Fellow-only orientation and personal leadership development sessions. All of this is available to Fellows for $100-200, sliding scale, which is less than half the full cost. Through these events, Fellows will build relationships with each other, and with members of local nonprofit boards.
