It takes deliberate acts and concentrated efforts, and that often starts with recruitment, orientation and and training for new board members.
This fast paced and interactive webinar will explore the foundation for recruiting the right people for your board and ensuring that the orientation and training experience sets them up for productive and successful terms to strengthen your nonprofit organization.
This workshop will provide participants with the following:
It doesn't matter if you have served on a board for years or if you are serving on a board for the first time, this workshop will help you with whatever stage of board development you are at with your organization.
