Praise For Susan Meier!
Susan Meier, principal at Meier and Associates, brings more than 25 years of governance and nonprofit experience to her work. From 2004 to 2011, Meier served as the vice president of consulting and training for BoardSource, the nation’s premier governance resource for nonprofit organizations. She works collaboratively with nonprofit executives and board leadership to identify governance challenges and opportunities and to implement proven strategies to address a broad array of governance issues.
Thanks to the success of her session at last year’s Shine the Light Nonprofit Forum, she is back for this year’s session on September 30th. Susan will be speaking on the importance of the board in different challenges that nonprofits face, such as sustainability measures and leadership transitions.
