Introduction to Board Service Training

Board service is an opportunity to connect the goals and aspirations of individuals to organizations, making an impact on our society’s most pressing needs.

If you are interested in joining a board but have little to no experience, this class is the perfect place to start! For those with previous board service experience, this training will help you expand your capacity to govern effectively. Finally, this training is a great resource for nonprofits seeking board members! It's full of ideas on the types of processes, procedures, and support board candidates are looking for in a board position.

Our recently updated Introduction to Board Service program will train you to serve as a board member and help you choose a board that is the right fit for your interests.
