BOARD MASTERS ONLINE!

 

OVERVIEW

Nonprofit boards need strong skills and a thorough understanding of their role to serve effectively. In this interactive, intensive session, we cover the most important aspects of board governance. You'll leave with clarity about the roles and responsibilities of the board of directors as a governing body, a thorough understanding of the roles of staff members versus board members, and tools you can use to make your board the best it can be.  

 

*Please note - this is a two part series. You must attend both sessions. No refunds will be given for partial attendance. 

Sessions will be held from 3pm - 5pm on Sept 17 & Sept 24.

 

This training will include screen sharing and small group work in breakout rooms. A computer or tablet will allow for optimal participation. A dial-in only option is not available. 

 

  

YOU'LL LEARN

  • What it means to be legally and socially accountable for your organization

  • Principles of sound financial oversight

  • The board’s role in fundraising

  • The role of the board as "employer”  

  • Board conduct and how to develop a well-rounded, effective board of directors

 

 

FRAMEWORK

The session is organized around the nine responsibilities of a nonprofit board of directors:

  1. Determining the mission 
  2. Establishing the vision and strategic direction 
  3. Monitoring programs and service delivery 
  4. Assuring legal and bylaws compliance 
  5. Overseeing the organization’s finances and protecting its assets 
  6. Fundraising 
  7. Community relations 
  8. Selecting, supporting, and evaluating the executive director 
  9. Building the competency of the board 

 

AUDIENCE

Board Masters is intended for current and potential board members who:

  • Want to better understand the role of a nonprofit board

  • Want to be a better board member.

  • Want to learn about nonprofit governance 

  • Wonder whether their board is fulfilling its role

  • Despite their passion for the organization, are feeling disengaged and/or untapped as a board member 

 

Board Masters is suitable for organizations big and small, regardless of mission focusTo get the maximum benefit of this training, we strongly encourage at least one board member and one senior-level staff member attend together. We do not recommend this training for a nonprofit staff member attending without a board member present.
