Nonprofit Works Training: A Productive Board of Directors

From our friends at Nonprofit Works:

August 18, 9 am – 12 pm, Spring Street Gallery, 110 Spring Street, Saratoga Springs, NY

Nonprofit boards of directors vary widely. Most spend time helping their organizations be more effective, but few give the same attention to how the board could do its job better. A truly effective board understands its role and responsibilities in the context of the entire organization, and is willing to monitor its own performance on a regular basis. Though it can be difficult at first, boards that pay attention to how they’re doing find it makes their job easier.

Topics include:

  • Responsibilities and expectations of board members
  • Using a “job description” as a means of guiding your board
  • Structuring relationships between the board, committees, and staff
  • Getting committees to do the work of the board
  • Assessing your board’s needs and recruiting new members

Cost: $75 per person Special discount for friends of the Community Foundation: $50 per person! Includes training materials, refreshments, parking, and documents and templates that boards of directors may customize for their specific needs (inquire about group discounts)

Instructor:: Nonprofit Works president, Paul Mastrodonato, who serves on and helps guide boards of directors and advises them on their role and how to be more productive
