2023-2024 Nonprofit Training Program — Spring

Free Nonprofit Board Member Training

Board members of nonprofits serving Los Alamos and Rio Arriba Counties are encouraged to attend a brief and engaging workshop on Purpose Driven Board Leadership co-sponsored by the Los Alamos Community Foundation and United Way of Northern New Mexico. The session will be repeated in Los Alamos, Española and online during late February and early March. Advance registration is required. Lunch is provided at the in-person sessions.

Led by BoardSource Certified Governance Consultant Linley Daly, participants will learn the Four Principles of Purpose-Driven Board Leadership, the duties of the collective board and the responsibilities of board members. We’ll play a game called “Yours. Mine. Ours” where participants test their knowledge of the board’s responsibilities, staff responsibilities and shared responsibilities. We’ll also digest the importance of fundraising, member expectations forms and board evaluations. Q&A will follow.

Though geared to current board members, nonprofit staff, volunteers and prospective board members are welcome to participate.
