BoardReady Training

A Leadership Development Program that Prepares Rising Professionals To be Candidates for Serving on a Nonprofit Board in their Communities

We are excited to announce a new leadership development opportunity for those interested in serving as a board member of a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our 2023 BoardReady Training Series is designed to help enhance leadership skills and prepare you to serve with impact on non-profit boards within your community.

BoardReady will take place over the course of eight weeks, and you will learn the roles and responsibilities related to serving on a nonprofit board, including governance, strategic planning, fundraising, crisis communications, marketing, financial management and legal decision making.

Part of good board stewardship is the ability to raise funds for the 501c3 non-profit organization.

*Please note there is a financial commitment of $500 associated with the program. A $100 non-refundable deposit is due by March 22, 2023, along with the balance of $400 that is due on or before April 11, 2023.
