Are you serving on the board of a nonprofit organization? Whether you are new to nonprofit board service, or are an experienced director, this specialized training will benefit you.

Join us for a robust day of interactive training where we will explore your core oversight responsibilities and help improve your boardroom governance, financial oversight and leadership skills.

Topics

Rights and Responsibilities of Board Members

If you haven’t attended this workshop, it’s a must! Board members have serious responsibilities and legal obligations, but many do not fully understand them. This workshop is structured for new board member orientation and broken down to understandable terms. It’s also an excellent refresher for experienced directors. You will explore the legal duties, rights, responsibilities and best practices of volunteer board members in governing charitable and other nonprofit organizations with time for questions.

Understanding Financial Information

Have you ever wondered what financial information you should be receiving at board meetings? In this workshop, you will learn what fiscal information you should be receiving in the treasurer’s report, how to interpret it and spot “red flags”, what questions you should be asking, and how to determine if your organization is in a secure place.

Meeting Intangibles

All boards bring together a range of views and experiences. Come learn what your role is in helping your board work together effectively.
