Millions of nonprofits do not reach their full potential because greater engagement, support, and vision are needed from their boards. Boards that are able to offer not only oversight of what is, but vision and support for what could be can make a significant difference in an organization's ability to positively impact communities and exceed goals. On Wednesday's show, Dr. G and guests Vic Baker with San Diego Gas & Electric/SoCalGas (an experienced nonprofit board member) and Mike Burns, Board Consultant with BWB Solutions, LLC in Branford, CT will discuss how to effectively engage boards to achieve greater visionary leadership and support from its members.
