Virtual Institute for Trustees Offers Board Leadership Training for BTCF Region

Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation is pleased to join Essex County Community Foundation as a partner in presenting the 2021 Virtual Institute for Trustees, an annual conference inviting nonprofit leaders to gather together for educational workshops and networking opportunities.

Building on the success of BTCF's inaugural Board Leadership Forum and designed for board leaders and executive directors, the event features 24 virtual workshops from leading nonprofit experts and powerful discussions and connections with hundreds of peers equally committed to their leadership roles. The new virtual format provides attendees with the flexibility to attend wherever they are, and the value to participate in as many sessions as they want.

This partnership is part of a broader effort between BTCF and ECCF to leverage resources in support of building capacity and leadership within the nonprofit sector, given the challenges facing organizations due to the pandemic and its economic consequences. 

Registrations will be accepted at a discounted early bird rate of $110 until midnight on March 7. After that, registration will cost $130 and will remain open until midnight on April 7.

NEW! You can now register your organization’s entire board for a discounted rate of $500.

The IFT kicks off on April 7 with a keynote address by Phil Buchanan, president of the Center for Effective Philanthropy, entitled “Leading for Nonprofit Impact Amid Unprecedented Challenge.”

Workshop Sessions | April 9 to May 15

No need to pick and choose between your favorite IFT workshops. At Virtual IFT, you can attend all 24 sessions via Zoom. As an added value, all sessions will be recorded and distributed to watch (or re-watch) at your convenience. Workshop topics include racial equity, endowment building, crisis planning, governance, advocacy, finance and much more.

IFT Lunch Hours

The virtual IFT will offer participants the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees through a number of topic-driven, informal peer discussions.
