An Expanded Board for Our Growing OrganizationOctober 10, 2019 2:50 pm
Mainsprings Founder & CEO, Chris Gates, talks about Mainsprings’ first ever annual Board Retreat and the importance of its newly expanded board in Tulsa, Oklahoma this past weekend.
The same can be said for a Board of Directors of any organization. Without a solid, active, and working Board, organizations can often become complacent and rate of change can slow. As we have continued to grow year over year, in 2018, we decided that we wanted to take a critical look at our Board of Directors and strategically grow it so that it can help all of our programs, and organization as a whole, bloom into the type of organization we want to be 5-10 years down the road. Without this solid backbone, the dreams we have may very well stay dreams.
This past weekend, we held our very first Annual Board Retreat in Tulsa, OK, and it was a roaring success. Our members flew in from all across the country to get to know each other, learn about where Mainsprings has come from and to set new goals for the next few years. We had delicious food, hours of meetings covering everything from our messaging to the details of each program we operate, and were able to get to know each other while having a great time together. The weekend was exactly what we wanted it to be and we are incredibly grateful to have so many new faces on our team, leading us to become an even greater organization in the years to come.
