Board Governance Training – Launching in 2019

In 2019, Leadership Columbus will implement a new model of our Board Governance Training to ensure community volunteers are equipped to handle the challenges and rewards of nonprofit leadership. Sign up here to be notified regarding the training’s launch.

 

Nonprofit board service can be one of life’s most rewarding experiences. That’s exactly the point behind our Board Governance Training. Our goal is to prepare individuals with the background, tools and insight they need to get the most out of their board service. Because when that happens, both the individual and the organization they are serving benefit most.

Our Board Governance Training is designed to ensure community volunteers are equipped to handle the challenges and rewards of nonprofit leadership. Formatted into a half-day training workshop, the session covers a board member’s basic duties and responsibilities, board governing documents, leadership expectations, fiduciary responsibilities, and outlines the typical relationships that exist between board and staff members.

Key to the effectiveness of the workshop is a panel of high-profile board presidents and nonprofit executives who share their expectations and experiences. Their involvement includes a question and answer session, which enables participants to gain information on those topics of most interest to them.

The session concludes with information on networking opportunities and guidelines for helping participants seek a board appointment that’s best suited for their interests and experience.

Attendees will learn:

  • Roles and responsibilities of board members
  • Fiduciary duties of board members
  • Types of nonprofit organizations
  • How to serve as an ambassador for your employer and nonprofit
  • How to choose the right nonprofit board for you
  • How to maximize your board opportunity
