Nonprofit Board Training Series


Nonprofit boards need to strengthen their skills and enhance engagement and leadership to adapt to increasing demands in this rapidly evolving environment. NAM’s Board Boot Camp offers essential training for new and experienced board members, providing them with practical information, resources, and tools that they can put to use right away to further their organizations’ missions.

Board Boot Camp was developed in partnership with Leadership Omaha, Omaha Community Foundation, Nonprofit Association of the Midlands, UNO’s College of Public Affairs and Community Service, United Way of the Midlands and the Women’s Fund of Omaha. 


 Board Boot Camp includes:

  • Six excellent sessions led by local experts
  • Networking and peer-learning opportunities
  • Complimentary copy of NAM's Board Basics Handbook to share with your board (not available to single session attendees)

This series is for you if:

  • You’re new to nonprofit governance
  • You wonder whether your board is covering all of its bases
  • You want to help make the board better and you’re not sure what steps to take
  • Or, despite your passion for the organization, you are feeling disengaged and/or untapped as a board member
