Third post in a series following ED, Gretchen Benner's attendance of the York County Non-Profit Management Certificate Program - Rock Hill, SC.
Tiffany and Dr. Scott Whaley presented “Board Governance” during this month’s series. One of the takeaways from this lecture discussed the importance for Piedmont Music Therapy (PMT) to diversify its Board of Directors - building a strong team! With enough support PMT will be able to open a digital application process for interested service members. The shared motto by the Whaleys was “always be building your board.”
The purpose of a Board of Directors is to act on behalf of the community while furthering the organization’s mission. PMT is grateful for its board members and their willingness to support our mission of providing music therapy treatment, music lessons and educational events in the greater Charlotte area. During our first year operating as an NPO (Non-Profit Organization), the extra level of accountability and support has been appreciated! The board also helps to dream into the future for capacity building. I look forward to attending the future lectures in next month and into 2024. Happy New Year and best wishes during your holidays!
