Intro to Board Service – Virtual Workshop (Dec 7, 2021)

Foundational learning for serving effectively on a board

Following the session, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the core functions, legal and other responsibilities of a nonprofit board of directors.
  • Understand governance structures and how to apply them.
  • Identify common challenges and related strategies facing nonprofit boards.
