Board Chair Boot Camp, Summer 2022

Wednesday, June 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
Online Event


Current board chairs, newly appointed board chairs, presidents-elect - are you ready to advance your board leadership skills?
No matter the length of service, board members often feel under-prepared to take on the wide range of new responsibilities when assuming the role of board chair. Board Chair Boot Camp can give you a head start on successfully fulfilling this crucial role.
Participants will leave this session with a solid grasp of skills and behaviors needed to become highly effective in their role as board chairs. The curriculum focuses on these key areas: 
  • The fundamentals of board service, including roles, relationships and skills;
  • Sound governance practices, board structure, board policy and tasks;
  • Succession planning and the board chair/executive director relationship. 
This is a must-attend opportunity for current and prospective board chairs!

This session will not be recorded.
