Nonprofit Board Training
"Having served on various boards in San Joaquin County for the past 40 years, I have certainly attended my share of 'trainings' and this is by far the very BEST ever."
-Bobbie Wallinger, Library & Literacy Foundation for San Joaquin County
In the past, boards brought on new members with little experience, little training and assumed they would pick up what they needed to know. Today it is important that organizations are governed by people who understand their role as a board member in leading their organization. People want to be effective board members but don't always have all the knowledge or experience they need.
On Tuesday evenings, September 9 & 16, 2014, the University of the Pacific Westgate Center for Leadership and Management Development will hold a two-evening training program specifically for nonprofit boards. The purpose of this program is to help develop leaders serving on nonprofit boards. The core topics covered will build a bridge between board members and management and will enable the board and their organization to reach their full potential. A few of the topics discussed include:
- The Role of the Board
- Setting the Mission, Vision and Strategic Goals of the Organization (What's our purpose?)
- Recruitment, Orientation and Rentention of Board Members
- Financial Understanding for Board Members
- Surviving in Tough Economic Times
- Evaluating the Executive Director
- Creating Successful Annual Board Retreats
- Fund Development
- Running Effective Board Meetings
- Board Self-Assessment
The Westgate Center is proud to partner with the Leadership Stockton Alumni Association (LSAA) in this program and our Non-Profit Lending Library. LSAA strives to help in the development of leaders in our community. The Westgate Center and the LSAA feel it is important for boards to send at least two people from each organization, ideally a board member and the executive director.
