(Eastern Bergen County, New Jersey; May 20, 2019) — How can members of a board of trustees increase an organization’s visibility?  Find out in The Community Chest’s Professional Development Workshop Series last workshop, ‘Board Members as Ambassadors’, on June 10, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 5: 30 p.m.  The workshop will be held at Englewood Health (formerly Englewood Hospital) in conference room A/B located at 350 Engle Street on Englewood, New Jersey.  The workshop is free and open to the public.

Prominent nonprofit consultant Joan Garry will lead the workshop and discuss ways to ignite board members to increase their outreach and network resulting in their being motivated to expand their footprint and stay involved beyond the gala or an event.  Garry’s work in the nonprofit sector began after 14 years in executive positions in corporate entertainment, including her role as a member of the management team that launched MTV in 1981.  For nearly a decade, Garry served as the Executive Director of GLAAD, one of the largest gay rights organizations in the country, launching several successful media campaigns.
