The 2023 Institute for Trustees Gathers Sector Experts and Board Leaders for 18 Virtual Workshops
What's next for nonprofit organizations which, over the last three years, have pivoted, stepped up and persevered through some of the most complex times we've faced as a region, a state and a county?
Explore this question and so much more at the 2023 Institute for Trustees. This event, which includes 18 virtual workshops, will bring more than 1,000 nonprofit leaders together for six weeks of educational workshops and networking opportunities led by experts in the sector from March 28 to May 15. Workshops will be available to view both live and on-demand and will feature topics from strategic planning and fundraising–to diversity and board development.
Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation invites all nonprofit executive directors and board members from Berkshire, Columbia, northeast Dutchess and northwest Litchfield counties to join us. Registration is $130. Full board registration is $550, with no limit on the number of board members who can attend.
On March 28, Rachel Hatch, chief operating officer at Institute for the Future (IFTF) – a nonprofit research firm that helps organizations, communities, partners and leaders build resiliency – will kick off the 14th annual Institute for Trustees with a discussion that answers this question and more. Hatch will talk about the ways in which nonprofits and philanthropy will need to evolve to address the biggest shifts facing our sector in the coming decades: from a changing climate to the evolving world of work and more.
Hatch replaces the previously announced speaker, IFTF’s Director of Philanthropy Futures, Charles Tsai.
There is no need to pick and choose among the 18 workshops. Participate in as many live or recorded sessions as you wish at your convenience.

The virtual IFT will offer participants the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees through a series of informal peer discussions from noon to 1 p.m. Depending on the session, breakouts will be organized by service sector, geographic area, or role (ED, Board Chair, etc.).
