Rise to the Next Level of Board Involvement

Board Basics, led by Beth Spong, Rainmaker Consulting

Whether you are considering board membership for the first time or have served long-term, join us for a training with expert presenter. We will explore such topics as what it means to sit on a board, what skills you need to serve on a board, how boards function, and how to ensure your personal values are reflected in your nonprofit work.

There is no cost to individuals who are not currently serving on a board or on the board of a member organization to attend Board Basics, and dinner is included. Suggested donation of $15 for all others. All attendees will be “board certified” by Leadership Pioneer Valley and eligible for FREE Board Matching.

Pre-registration is required.
