Serving on a nonprofit board can be fulfilling and inspiring work where you can truly make a difference in the success of a nonprofit organization. However, Board service is becoming increasingly complex with stringent fiduciary requirements and a challenging nonprofit landscape to navigate. During this session, we’ll discuss the requirements for serving on a board, how to be an effective board member, and what it means to be a “best practicing” board. This workshop will review the fiduciary duties and responsibilities to successfully guide a nonprofit organization. We’ll review the board “role description” in detail and how to build your skills and capabilities to be a strong and effective board member. Designed for entry to mid-level practitioner; new and current board members; individuals considering board service.
Light refreshments will be provided.
