Free Nonprofit Board Member Training
Board members of nonprofits serving Los Alamos and Rio Arriba Counties are encouraged to attend one of three brief and engaging workshops on Purpose Driven Board Leadership. Co-sponsored by the Los Alamos Community Foundation and United Way of Northern New Mexico, the sessions will be repeated in Espanola, Los Alamos and online during the last part of February. Advance registration is required. Lunch will be provided at the in-person sessions.
Led by BoardSource Certified Governance Consultant Linley Daly, participants will learn the Four Principles of Purpose-Driven Board Leadership, the duties of the collective board, and the responsibilities of board members. We’ll play a game called “Yours. Mine. Ours” where participants test their knowledge of the board’s responsibilities, staff responsibilities and shared responsibilities. We’ll also digest the importance of fundraising, member expectations forms, and board evaluations. Q&A will follow.
Dates, times and registration.
Board members are welcome to attend whichever session meets their schedule. The Feb. 22 and 28 workshops are in-person only and the Feb. 27 workshop is online only. There are no hybrid sessions.
