Purpose: Your board of directors sets the tone and direction of your organization. How do you build a strong, diverse, and engaged board? Then, once you accomplish that, how do you maintain member involvement? This training will provide a step-by-step guide to building an effective board as well as strategies for keeping members involved and accountable.
The training will be delivered online over the course of 4 weeks, beginning on September 4. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a 75-minute facilitated webinar. In addition to participating in the webinar, you can expect to spend an additional hour per week completing written assignments, readings, or watching videos. CEUs will be awarded for this training.
All webinars are conducted from 3:00–4:15 p.m. (eastern time).
