Helpful with Board Development (Part 3): National Queer Theater/Eviction Defense Collaborative
Jan 28, 2021 Season 1 Episode 26

I’m excited today to be able to share the third piece of our three-part series focusing on Board Development. If you’ve joined us for the previous episodes, you’ll know that this is a special collaboration that I’m producing with Sean Kosofsky who is commonly known as “The Nonprofit Fixer.”

Like last week, you’re getting TWO interviews in this episode. Both organizations are clients of Sean’s that have been doing some terrific work in the area of board development.

First up is Adam Odsess-Rubin. Adam is the Founder and Artistic Director of National Queer Theater. Originally from Berkeley, CA, he has worked as a director, actor, and teaching artist nationally with American Conservatory Theater, The Guthrie Theater, and New York Theatre Workshop. Adam graduated from New York University with a master's degree in Educational Theatre in 2018 and started National Queer Theater to advance liberation for queer communities through the arts.

Then, you’ll hear from Martina Cucullu Lim.  Martina is the Executive Director of the Eviction Defense Collaborative where she leads anti-displacement and homelessness prevention initiatives in the City and County of San Francisco. In fact, EDC has served as the lead agency for the design, implementation, and oversight of San Francisco's Tenant Right to Counsel System. In her role, Martina oversees the collaboration of nine legal services organizations providing full-scope legal representation to tenants at risk of eviction. Martina also advocates for the expansion of tenant rights and the preservation of housing equity and access to justice across San Francisco.

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. She has extensive experience in strategic planning, team facilitation, change management, and association operations.

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.
