Are you a current or an upcoming Board/Camp Committee Chair? Mazel Tov!!!
I assume you received, read, and committed to memory the 613-page Camp Chair’s Manual, which is a lot like the one babies come with!
As Board Chair or Vice Chair you are uniquely positioned and empowered by your Camp to lead, change, inspire, and engage your Boards and Camp communities. Yet, most Board Chairs don’t come with a degree in nonprofit governance and board “chairmanship." Additionally, the rapid changes in the world of nonprofit governance and leadership make it hard to keep up.
Despite every upcoming Chair’s promise to him/herself to make a real difference and take the Camp to new heights, many Chairs find themselves at the end of their term treading water, wondering what happened and where the time went.
If that resonates with you, check out LEAP – JCamp 180’s NEW professional development peer training program designed specifically for Day and Overnight Jewish Camp current and upcoming Board/Camp Committee Chairs
. You owe it to yourself and your Camp!
