Educate your new and current board members

Help your board members understand the expectations and responsibilities of a nonprofit board. The Center offers a one-day course that provides a complete overview of the board member’s role. This is an easy, informative way to initiate new members to your board, and can also serve as a refresher for current members.

The course covers the role of a nonprofit board in:

  • Governing the organization
  • Ensuring that the organization has sufficient funds to carry out its mission and how to provide proper oversight with respect to the expenditure of those funds
  • Evaluating and compensating the CEO
  • Assessing risk with respect to the organization’s operations
  • Planning for the future of the organization, and more

This all-day course is taught by professionals with expertise in the running of nonprofit organizations, including:

  • Lawyers who work with nonprofit organizations
  • Certified public accountants that specialize in nonprofit accounting
  • Fundraising professionals and
  • Nonprofit executives who have many years of experience in strategic planning

The course is designed for individuals who have recently joined a nonprofit board and existing board members who wish to enhance their skills as directors.
