Julia Patrick | Board Development + Retention

Friday, January 29th  11:00AM – 12:00PM EST

Bringing together expert panelists, instructors, and leaders in the nonprofit community, Patrick and her team have designed innovative programs that educate nonprofits on the issues that help them achieve their missions.
It started with live workshops and panel discussions aiming to move nonprofits towards efficiency and best practices.

From localized beginnings in 2014, by 2016 the American Nonprofit Academy worked with more than 2,000 nonprofit leaders and staff. In 2017 the organization moved their live content to an online portal giving 24/7 access to students.

Patrick continues to lead lectures, Board retreats, and keynote speeches in person. Her lively speaking style engages nonprofits and those who serve them. “I get to see the genius of nonprofit organizations daily,” she notes. With her Chalk Talk series, Julia delivers specific approaches, tools, best practices along with innovations that strengthen nonprofit communities and all they do. She travels across the globe spreading her messages of nonprofit success and advocacy with the mantra: When Nonprofits Succeed We All Succeed.
