Presented by The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound in collaboration with Washington Nonprofits and United Way of Lewis County
Boards play an important role in the success of any organization. They move forward an organization’s mission, and they steward the assets and relationships of that organization to keep it out of harm. Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment and other critical issues.
This interactive, hands-on training training will cover board responsibilities, operations, development, fundraising, and advocacy. We will use Washington Nonprofit’s “Board Action Map” to leave organizations with an actionable list of ways to improve their practice. This workshop is designed for board members and the people who work with them, namely executive directors and program staff. It offers ideas for new board members and those who have served for a long time.
