16 octobre 2019, 6:30 - 9:00 PM

Board 101This two-hour workshop offers a first look at becoming a board member for a charity or non-profit organization. The workshop is the first of three which examine the roles and responsibilities of board members and the characteristics of effective boards.

  • Roles and responsibilities of boards
  • Contributing to organizational culture
