Effective trustee leadership: what board members, development professionals and heads must know
Tuesday, 11 June 15:00 – 16:00
Without the strategic involvement of your school’s Board of Trustees, it can be difficult to meet your fundraising objectives. But what should that involvement look like? What happens when the appropriate investment does not take place – or, conversely, when governing bodies become too involved in development? Using the IDPE and Graham-Pelton benchmarking findings, this session will explore the areas where strategic investment is necessary, along with the ways to consider and evaluate the oft-discussed ROI.
Panelists: Charles Platt, Development Committee Chair, Miss Hall’s School Pittsfield, Massachusetts; Mark Taylor, Bursar, The King’s School, Canterbury; Elizabeth Zeigler, President and CEO, Graham-Pelton
Chair: Andrew Beales, Development Director, Durham School
