Being all volunteers and having rotating terms, it can be challenging for boards to stay knowledgeable about best practices and responsibilities. Providing this education, not only will it help to ensure continued growth, but also creates ties to long-term sustainability.
Our Board Trainings help ensure your customized training objectives are met, conflict is handled productively, and participants leave feeling reconnected to the mission and reenergized to do the work! Leading a nonprofit organization is a lot like preparing for athletic competition. It requires consistent training, practice, and a plan to succeed. A board is never past the need for training. There are many factors that change how a nonprofit operates, such as the pandemic, growth, seasons, and needs. Because of this, all board members benefit from regular governance training.
