Boards are a decision-making body and responsible for governing a nonprofit organization. Providing overall leadership and policy direction, the board ensures sound stewardship of nonprofit assets and resources, are held to the highest legal and ethical standards, and ensure their loyalties are to the nonprofit through prudent good faith decisions to advance the nonprofit organization's mission. This 3 module course teaches you the responsibilities of being a board member, practices that you can implement to increase the effectiveness of your board, and how to keep your board motivated and engaged.

Benefits of registering for all 3 modules:

  • Cost savings (you essentially get one course free)
  • Build a network and support system with your peers as you take this journey together
  • Receive an invitation to brown bag lunches (that means you bring your lunch) with others between sessions to discuss your progress and support each other.

Module 1: Board Roles & Responsibilities - Oct. 4th
Module 2: Intentional Practices - Oct. 5th
Module 3: Board Revitalization- Oct. 6th
