Helpful with Board Development (Part 2): TurnOUT/KidPower International
Jan 21, 2021 Season 1 Episode 25

This episode is the second in a collaborative series that I’m doing with Sean Kosofsky, known as the Nonprofit Fixer.  We’re focused in on Board Development in preparation for a webinar that we’ll be co-hosting on the 29th of January.

This week, you’re going to hear from two nonprofit leaders who have deliberately invested time into board development. Both are clients of Sean and they agreed to share their experiences here so that we can learn from their work.

First up is Jack Beck. When he was just 16 years old, Jack was struggling with serious challenges as a queer young person and it was an LGBTQ+ nonprofit that stepped in with help, which made all the difference.  Since then, he has dedicated his career to supporting organizations like the one that helped him.  He began by working with community-based HIV organizations, and over the past 15 years, he has worked with grassroots queer groups all over the world.  In 2015, he left his full-time job to start TurnOut, a nonprofit organization that focuses on connecting Bay Area volunteers with LGBTQ+ causes that can use their help.

Our second interview for this episode is with Irene van der Zande.  Irene has been dedicated to protecting children, teens, and adults, including those with special needs from abuse, bullying, assault, exploitation and other emotional and physical violence by empowering them with knowledge and skills.  She is the Executive Director and Founder of Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, a global nonprofit that has served over 6 million people of different ages, abilities, cultures, beliefs, and identities since 1989.

ABOUT YOUR HOST

Yes, there is a “real” Joy in The Joy of Membership.

Founder & CEO Joy Duling has been working with leaders of associations, trade groups and nonprofits since 2005.

She has also walked the same journey, serving for nearly 10 years as the Executive Director of a membership-based nonprofit which she helped launch from scratch and led to annual revenues of more than $1M exclusively from membership contributions.

Joy has been widely recognized as a speaker, an online educator and a trusted advisor, twice winning the “Unsung Hero Award” from the National Association of Women Business Owners' Central Illinois Chapter. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Social Work with Specialization in Policy, Planning and Administration.

But beyond industry experience and education…

Joy Duling is the calm voice you want to have in the room when you, your team, or your board is overwhelmed by ideas and options.

She's a trusted resource at the other end of an email or phone call who knows the answer, or can find the answer, when it's not clear what to do next in your approach.

She's a planner of systems and driver of progress that helps your organization achieve stretch goals.

She's a gifted facilitator of conversation, collaboration and constructive growth. 

And she's approachable and results-oriented,  which makes it easy to shake loose of the old and start fresh on the new.
