Description:

This event is offered in partnership with the Initiative Foundation.

Since nonprofits are not privately owned (like typical businesses), they are overseen by a boards of directors who represent the best interests of the community. When effective, boards are amazing resources for their organizations though finding, training, and managing a board can be one of the trickiest jobs of a nonprofit executive director. Boards need ongoing information, direction, and care to help them work effectively. Join this training and conversation tailored for nonprofit staff and board members to learn best practices in board governance and how board members can best support their organization.

Sourcewell strives to bring the highest-quality resources, information, and training opportunities to our members. We’re honored to team up with the Initiative Foundation to bring this opportunity to our central Minnesota region.
