The board of directors of a nonprofit organization is the ultimate governing body of the group. Individually and collectively, the board is responsible for financial oversight, providing leadership and direction, being transparent and accountable to its stakeholders, and protecting its legal liability.
It’s rare to discover a board member of a nonprofit that has strong expertise in all areas of board duties. Nearly every board member will benefit by developing knowledge in each of these areas.
These two half-day workshops led by Jarrett Ransom will cover:
- Recruiting New Board Members
- Onboarding and Training
- Keeping Your Board Engaged
- Evaluating of Board Members
- Firing a Board Member
- Fundraising for Boards
