January Board Development INC Training
Nonprofit Board Basics
Whether you have an all-volunteer board or are now experiencing working with your first executive director, this session is for you. “Working” boards have basic governance responsibilities as well as much of the day-to-day operations. At times, doing the work can take precedence over maintaining legal and fiduciary requirements. Learn the basics of nonprofit board member responsibilities and how to enhance the performance of your leadership team.
Build & Maintain a High Functioning Board
The Functional Nonprofit Board - A functional board is essential to the health and wellbeing of a nonprofit, but many nonprofit boards flounder for lack of proper direction, policies, and leadership. If you've ever heard a board member say "I never felt like I fit in," or "I never knew why I was there," or "I didn't realize this was a lifetime appointment," or "I had no idea I was expected to do _______," this might be the session for you. Learn how a high functioning board works and steps you can take to build such a board, or redirect a not-so-functional board to be the most effective it can be on behalf of the mission you serve.
