Standards for Excellence Institute Accreditation Manager, Melissa Sines, has been selected to present at this year’s BoardSource Leadership Forum.
BoardSource’s website states that “Speakers at the BoardSource Leadership Forum have always been among the most influential and knowledgeable in the nonprofit sector. They are inspiring leaders who are catalyzing change; researchers and consultants who are on the front-line of understanding effective governance and its influence on mission impact; and board chairs, board members, and chief executives who have led their organization to extraordinary heights.”
Ms. Sines will be leading a session called Standards for Excellence: Focus on Leadership. Participants in this session will have a chance to assess their leadership capacity using concrete benchmarks and measurements outlined in the Standards for Excellence: An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector that have been proven to help organizations grow and be more successful in meeting their missions.
Melissa Sines joined the Standards for Excellence Institute in March 2011. As Accreditation Manager, she works directly with organizations applying to earn accreditation and recognition, helping them reach the highest standards of ethics and accountability in nonprofit governance, management, and operations. She has held positions at Jankowski Associates/GrantsDirect.com, DeLeon & Stang, CPAs and Advisors, and as an associate governance consultant at Quantum Governance, L3C, an independent nonprofit consulting firm in the DC area. Melissa received a M.P.A. degree from the University of Baltimore and a B.A. degree from Hood College.
The 2014 BoardSource Leadership Forum will be held on October 9 and 10 in Washington DC.
