Each year, Texas CASA provides a training for local CASA program board members to meet the required board training. In 2022, we will offer “The Board Building Cycle” presented by Wendy Biro-Pollard, Certified Governance Consultant for BoardSource. The training will be offered in a 3-part series, each 1.5 hours in length. Each will take place between noon – 1:30 p.m.
Each program received a copy of the book “The Board Building Cycle” in late August. Board members may attend the webinars live by registering for each session below or view them at a later date through the Texas CASA website.
1. STRATEGIC RECRUITMENT (Jan. 19, 2022)
Build a board of capable, diverse and enthusiastic people with the right mix of skills, experiences and backgrounds by identifying potential board members, cultivating their interest, and recruiting them to serve.
2. EFFECTIVE ENGAGEMENT (Feb. 16, 2022)
Engage all board members, not just new ones, in the work of the board through ongoing education about CASA and its programs, the external operating environment, and the board’s leadership role and by creating a culture of inclusion that values the input of all members.
3. INTENTIONAL REVITALIZATION (March 17, 2022)
Stimulate thoughtful conversation about effective governance, understand the board’s performance through self-assessment and regularly look for opportunities to strengthen the way the board works.
Once all three trainings have been completed by a board member, by viewing the webinar and completing the review, your program has met the requirement for the year.
