Curious about how people become board members?

Want to know what's involved in sitting on a non-profit's board?


Becoming a member of a non-profit organization’s board can be a meaningful way to apply your experience in the non-profit sector at the governance level to help advance a non-profit's social impact. It can be an incredibly rewarding way for professionals to give back while learning new skills that can enhance their own careers.
Becoming A Board Member is a two-hour interactive workshop perfect for professionals who have an interest in volunteering at a leadership level and want to learn more about becoming a Board Director before they commit. You’ll also get to meet a representative from the City of Toronto’s Public Appointments Secretariat who will share information about which City of Toronto agencies are currently recruiting board members and how you can apply for their roles.

By the end of the session you'll know the answers to the following questions:

  • What is a Board of Directors and why do organizations need them?
  • What skills do I need to sit on a Board?
  • Do I need previous Board experience?
  • What do I need to know about the Board before I decide to accept a board position? 
  • What are the benefits of volunteering on a Board?
  • How do I find a non-profit to join the board of?

Past attendees described the workshop as:

"Very thorough coverage of the basics with unexpected and welcome details beyond what I had hoped for. Much more practical knowledge than I expected!"

"Great session! I will recommend this to friends."

"I found the workshop very engaging and well-organized. Valuable session."
