Your board of directors sets the tone and direction of your organization. How do you build a strong, diverse, and engaged board? 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. This training is intended for staff within victim service organizations who work closely with a board of directors. It is not for those who are serving on a board of directors.
The training will be delivered online over the course of 4 weeks, beginning on April 1, 2019. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a 75-minute facilitated webinar. In addition to attending 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. Please Note: Space is limited, apply today to reserve your spot.
All webinars are conducted from 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m. (eastern time).
