COSA Monthly Meeting
Tuesday, January 22

Our next meeting will be most beneficial if at least 2 people from your agency attend, and even better, have one of them be a Board member!
Leadership Team Building
Strengthening the partnership among executive, management and board leadership.  We all know how it feels to be a part of a bad team: miscommunication; mistrust; strategies that fail; demoralizing.
Come to this COSA workshop led by David Sharken to learn approaches to build your teams.  Bring at least two people from each organization if you want to get the most out of this hour.
David Sharken, Principal of Rainmaking Consulting, has a diverse background in nonprofit leadership having led a variety of organizations in roles including executive director, development and program director, organizational development consultant, and executive coach. Additionally, he has served as senior director for two private national foundations as well as an active board member for a number of nonprofits. Prior to joining Rainmaker, I was the director of partnerships for a national foundation, The Proteus Fund in Amherst, Massachusetts, and director of the Camp Legacy Initiative and mentor for the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s JCamp180. As executive director of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts for 12 years, the organization grew from a staff of 12 and a $1 million budget to a 45-member team with an $8 million budget, and I helped create The Food Bank Farm and other innovative programs that received national acclaim. David has consulted on organizational development issues with nonprofits and small businesses for over 25 years and has provided strategic advice to successful major donor campaigns ranging from $500,000 to $18 million. He has been a keynote speaker, trainer and presenter on topics of nonprofit management, diversified fundraising, board governance, and strategic planning and program development.
We hope to see you there!
Meetings are held at WWII Club Banquet Hall
