Book Launch with a Little Jazz: You and Your Nonprofit Board: Advice and Practical Tips from the Field's Top Practitioners, Researchers and Provocateurs, by Joan Roberts, Jane Garthson, and Brian Hayman

Toronto, Ontario
September 12, 2013

5:30-7:00 p.m.
95 Prince Arthur Ave

This great new resource for board members is published by CharityChannel Press and features articles by local consultants Jane Garthson, Brian Hayman and Joan Roberts.

Our event will feature the performance of a jazz combo and engage attendees in a conversation about the nature of that discipline and its implications for re-imagining the agendas of governing boards.

Every jazz performance is an act of collective reimagining; an improvised musical conversation that takes its creators from somewhere familiar to somewhere new – a kind of “I-never-thought-of-it-that-way- before” experience. Improvising, however, isn’t winging it but is grounded in a discipline that liberates the imagination.

At the launch:

  • Interview with the authors
  • Book Sales (cash or cheque only)
  • Jazz Performance
  • Light Refreshments
