The Role of the Board - Akron
Over 5,000 nonprofit board members trained
As nonprofits face growing complexities and challenges, getting
right has never been more important. As a board member, you bring relevant skills, expertise and networks to the organization. It is important to have a clear understanding of what your job is as a board member, and what it's not.
The key to your organization's success depends on the board and the chief executive developing a competitive and forward vision, leading the organization through change, and developing resources to accomplish objectives. Organizations are effective when the board and staff recognize their respective roles and work in concert.
This seminar features an expert panel that will share their experience, discuss the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit board members and consider challenges and opportunities facing nonprofits. This highly acclaimed seminar includes presentations, a panel discussion and dialogue with the audience, and case study analysis.
After attending this training, you will have guidelines for effective and meaningful nonprofit board service and a clear understanding of your role and the expectations of a nonprofit board member.
