Are you considering board service, or desiring to be more effective in your current role as a board member? This workshop will help new and prospective board members gain an appreciation for the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards, individual board members, board officers, and board committees. Other topics will include: legal issues for nonprofit boards, organizational life cycles, and effective board meetings.
The workshop will be engaging and interactive, and will include opportunities for participants to apply the concepts and models to their own organizations. We have offered this for several years, always with very strong evaluations.
