Board Member Basics *NEW*

Are you new to a nonprofit board or considering joining a board for the first time? Do you have questions about what might be expected of you individually or of the board as a whole? If so, join us and together we will review Board Member Basics in a no-judgment environment where you can feel free to ask questions. We'll cover these topics: What's a 501c3 and why is it structured like that? Why join a board and why are they important? What are the roles & responsibilities of board members? Why are diverse voices important to boards? How do you read a budget? Participants are welcome to bring, for general discussion, job descriptions of any board position that they are considering.
