BOARDS WITH BRAINS is SVP’s open-to-all nonprofit governance education series. Join us for our 2017 trainings, like this one: Board service can be exciting and also daunting. Learn the basics of the Colorado nonprofit sector, board roles and legal duties, and how to bring your talents to the table and help create a great nonprofit board.
About this Session:
Board service can be exciting and also daunting, yet many of us receive little to no training in what it means to be a board member…much less a good one! In this session on the basics of board service, we’ll share an overview of nonprofits in Colorado and consider what it means to be a part of this incredible sector. Next, we will discuss the legal duties and roles and responsibilities shared by nonprofit board and their board members, as well as discuss what makes a great board member. We’ll wrap up with some tools to help you best deploy your talents, skills and energy on your first, current or next nonprofit board of directors.
Attendees of this session can expect to:
- Gain a broad understanding of the scope of the nonprofit sector in Colorado
- Increase knowledge of board legal duties, roles and responsibilities among prospective and current board members

About SVP's Boards with Brains series:
SVP Boulder County believes strong nonprofits deliver better results. For our nonprofits to be wildly successful, we believe strong leaders – both staff and board – help create adept organizations. Our Boards with Brains professional development series was designed with that in mind. We’ve got a variety of nonprofit leadership topics, as well as ‘tracks’ and levels to help attendees identify which sessions suit them best.
Our per-session fee is a below-market $40. Individuals or organizations can purchase a transferable, 8-punch pass (giving you a $10 discount on each ticket), and, each session also includes a limited number of scholarship slots (just ask).
Please note, SVP closes registration two days prior to each session and all attendees are asked to register in advance.
