Curious about how people become board members?
Want to know what's involved in serving on a non-profit board?

This interactive information session covers everything you need to know about volunteering as a non-profit's board of directors, including your responsibilities, legal aspects, benefits, and how to determine the right role and organization for you. 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 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.

 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 and experience do I need to sit on a Board?
• 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?

"Very informative for someone who has not been on a board. Length of session was perfect". - December 2019
