Board Boot Camp – Grand Rapids


  • March 13, 2019
  • -

Board members will participate in board meetings and other engagements with more confidence and more knowledge about their role after attending Board Boot Camp. Participants will learn typical board responsibilities, ways they can support the executive director, and will discuss how they would respond to specific board scenarios.

Participants take home the Board Boot Camp Participant Guide and Fiduciary Duties of Directors of Charitable Organizations. While this training is open to all, it is designed for those new to serving on a board or who are contemplating joining a board, or staff or board members looking for a refresher in the roles and responsibilities of board members.

We’re offering two sessions – 8:30 am to noon and 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm – on March 13, which will cover the same topics, so you can select the most convenient time for your schedule.

This training is sponsored by Blandin Foundation.
