Non Profit Forum Invites Your Board for A Tune Up

Our fall forum will feature a presentation from Brian Crockett focused on building a board that is active on November 7 at 10am at Stockton Manahawkin Campus

In time for fall planning, our chamber has announced the Monday, November 7 Fall Non Profit Forum, Mission & Governance Tune-up: Building a Board that is Active (and legal), for an in person audience with a virtual presentation from Brian Crockett that will encourage Ocean County nonprofits to assess the strengths and weaknesses of their governance practices. This session will take up topics such as recruiting and activating new Board members, governance basics, fundraising roles, staying strategic, and how to have fun along the way.

For over a decade we have presented informative forums created to engage local non profit organizations that serve the Long Beach Island Region. Working independently, Brian Crockett employs a broad network of local and national professionals who care about the rich intersection of informal education, equitable access, nonprofit professionalism, and cultural innovation. He uses unorthodox means to engage cultural organizations of all sizes, seeking tangible outcomes that yield sustainability, trigger innovation, and change lives.

The event is scheduled to be held at Stockton Manahawkin Campus 712 East Bay Avenue. There is no fee to attend, but the organization representative must register with our office by calling 609.494.7211 or emailing

The Non Profit Forum has been gathering and educating local nonprofits for over a decade and is presented by Southern Ocean Chamber Association, Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, Stockton University Manahawkin Campus & The Ocean County Culture & Heritage Commission. As always, the Ocean County Culture & Heritage Commission will offer credit for recipients of the county art or history grants to be applied towards grant compliance.
