Becoming a member of a non-profit organization’s board can be a meaningful way to apply your experience in the non-profit sector at the governance level to help advance a non-profit's social impact. It can be an incredibly rewarding way for professionals to give back while learning new skills that can enhance their own careers.
Becoming A Board Member is a two-hour interactive workshop perfect for professionals who have an interest in volunteering at a leadership level and want to learn more about becoming a Board Director before they commit. 

By the end of the session you'll know the answers to the following questions:

  • What is a Board of Directors and why do organizations need them?
  • What skills do I need to sit on a Board?
  • Do I need previous Board experience?
  • What do I need to know about the Board before I decide to accept a board position? 
  • What are the benefits of volunteering on a Board?
  • How do I find a non-profit to join the board of?
