Apply for the Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center’s (OVC TTAC) National Victim Assistance Academy, Effective Management Series: “Developing and Managing a Board of Directors.”
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 provides a step-by-step guide to building an effective board and offers 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 January 7, 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 space.
All webinars are conducted from 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m. (eastern time).
