WE’RE ON BOARD

  • Financial responsibilities of non-profit boards
  • Fundraising responsibilities of boards and individual board members
  • Strategic planning for the organization

The foundation of the training is a board self-assessment, which your board members will complete individually and then as a group.  The ensuing discussion will encompass the items outlined above, and result in identification of some issues the agency needs to address and strategies for doing so. The fee includes a one-hour follow-up session 6 to 12 months after the initial workshop.
