Cause Oregon, in partnership with Northeast Oregon Economic Development District, is offering a comprehensive series of seminars this spring to sharpen the skills of nonprofit boards and staff. Whether you're new to the sector or a seasoned professional, the series will provide practical tools for your work.
Classes are stand-alone modules and also build a nonprofit toolkit sequentially. Participants can attend any number of sessions at $35 each, or register for all ten at a discounted rate of $295. Seating is limited; pre-registration is required. Fees are not refundable but can be credited for future sessions.
This week's session is on Board Responsibilities. Nonprofit boards are the governing bodies of public corporations. They're responsible for overseeing a nonprofit's activities through solid financial, legal and ethical policies. Board members also ensure their organization has adequate resources to meet its mission. In this session, we'll review the basics of being a Board Member. We'll also examine keys to becoming an effective and high-functioning Board of Directors.
