Are you interested in volunteering to serve on a nonprofit board, but have little or no experience? Already on a board, but want to brush up on the basics?
Board service is rewarding for many reasons. The appeal of giving your time, talent and treasure to a nonprofit that serves a cause, purpose or community that you care about has its own intrinsic reward. In addition to that, board members are leaders and can expect professional growth, networking opportunities and perhaps even a certain level of recognition in the community.
Board service is serious business and carries with it a significant level of responsibility. It is not a position to be taken lightly, so it is very important that a prospective candidate be fully aware of the responsibilities, the performance expectations, and the circumstances and opportunities associated with serving on a nonprofit board.
Governance Matters can help empower you with the education, tools and resources necessary to be the most effective board member possible and also connect you with the “right” nonprofit match. In this workshop, Barbara Paxton, Senior Program Officer of Governance Matters will walk you through the steps of what it means to serve on the Board of Directors of a nonprofit organization.
