St. Johns County: Board Chair & CEO Retreat


The Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida
St. Johns County, FL
The Board Chair and Executive relationship is the cornerstone of a strong leadership team. The Nonprofit Center created this day-long opportunity for CEOs and Board Chairs based on years of experience and feedback from leaders. By keeping the numbers low (limited to 12 organizational teams), we can provide an intensive series of learning, planning, and sharing exercises targeting the most important areas for leadership impact. Co-facilitated by Nonprofit Center CEO Rena Coughlin and BoardSource Senior Consultant Jim Schwartz, the day provides time for lecture, break out discussions, group interactions, and individual team planning. In addition, you’ll have time to get to know the “co-pilot” of your nonprofit, enjoy delicious food, and meet new peers.

A one-day investment can yield a more effective, collaborative and trusting relationship between the leaders, improving the impact on their organizations.
