Nonprofit Board Essentials

An Orientation to the Basic Roles and Responsibilities of Board Service


"The presentation was well organized and informative.  It gave our board vital information regarding policies, procedures, and how we can create and maintain a healthy board."

- Sharon Clark, Ph.D. 



Workshop Description

Most nonprofit board members never receive an orientation to their basic roles and responsibilities. As a result, you have amazing volunteers who want to help but don’t know how and staff that doesn’t understand why their board doesn’t do more. In this workshop, we will go over the 10 basic responsibilities of board service and will explore ways for nonprofit board members to maximize support of the organization's mission.

Intended Audience: Current board members, executive directors, and anyone wanting to learn more about nonprofit board service


  • Learn what it means to be a nonprofit board member and define your individual commitment
  • Gain a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards
  • Learn how to  move your board beyond basic oversight to governance as leadership
