Are you in a transformative or transitional stage of life and eager to put your passion for a nonprofit cause into practice? Searching for an experience that will provide you with both personal satisfaction and professional development? Nonprofit board service provides hands-on leadership involvement and valuable opportunities for personal satisfaction, skill building, resume updating, and growth of professional networks. A nonprofit board is responsible for the organization’s strategic planning and oversight; a well-functioning board is critical to the health and financial viability of an organization.
This workshop is open to all but geared towards women looking to make a career change or find a new role in the nonprofit sector. Topics will include the typical board structure, responsibilities of a board member, and how to determine the right organizational match for you by researching board job descriptions and by-laws, current member composition, and meeting attendance expectations.
