Carol Weisman
President - Board Builders

Carol Weisman is the president of Board Builders. She is an internationally known speaker, author, trainer and consultant who specializes in volunteerism, fund raising and governance. Carol works primarily in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK. She has served on 38 boards and has been president of 8.

Carol began her professional career working with street gangs, a marvelous background for working with boards. She found the gangs better organized, with clearer expectations and a solid leadership training program. Although she doesn’t recommend any fund raising that would end in incarceration, the gangs certainly had some “creative” ideas.

Carol is the author of 9 books. “Raising Charitable Children” is already in its 3rd printing and was featured in The New York Times, Parade Magazine, and Scholastic Parent and Child. Her latest book, “Transforming Ordinary People into Fundraising Superheroes: Even those who hate to ask,” is going into its second printing.

When not speaking and writing, Carol trains with a group of plus-sized runners called The Chaffing Dishes.
