BoardLaunch: On Board: The Basics to Being an Effective Board Member

This session is designed for the newly elected board members, volunteers interested in board service, seasoned board members seeking to re-familiarize themselves with board responsibilities, executive directors and nonprofit leadership staff as we introduce you to the roles of nonprofits and their boards as well as the critical impact the nonprofit sector has in the community.

Being a board member is an incredible opportunity to lead within the nonprofit sector and put your passion for a particular charitable cause into practice! But along with passion must come a clear understanding of roles, responsibilities and duties to ensure your nonprofit organization is fulfilling its mission fully.

Join us for this interactive session with Dr. Lloyd VanderKwaak, Consultant and President/CEO of ChildServe, as we explore trends, effective practices and legal requirements in nonprofit governance as it relates to board members, organizational oversight, securing necessary resources, program implementation and fiscal oversight duties.

Upon completion of this session, you will have a clear understanding of what you do and should bring to the nonprofit boardroom and how to best use your skills to advance the mission of the organization you care most about.
