    BoardLaunch: OnBoard - the Basics of Being an Effective Board Member

    September 18, 2017. Being a board member is an incredible opportunity to lead within the nonprofit sector and put your passion for a mission 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. In this session we will 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, you will have a clear understanding of what you do and should bring to the nonprofit boardroom and how best to use your skills to advance the mission of the organization you care most about.
