Register through Eventbrite here: Board Development Peer Learning Pop-Up Session

This peer learning pop-up session is focused on discussion about elements of a high functioning board of directors. Learn about legal requirements and best practices for boards. Registered non-profit organizations are required to have a governance board; as such, the State of Wisconsin has specified  legal requirements and duties for board members. This session will highlight board member roles & responsibilities, effective board meeting practices, and tools for high functioning boards.

Join us for this peer learning session led by Paul Roback, Professor & Community Development Educator for Washington County Extension. Paul will provide essential information about boards during the first part of the session. The second part of the session will allow for conversation and learning from each other about how you work with and strengthen your own board. We’ll introduce questions regarding board diversity, community leadership, and building leadership capacity on the board.

This session is recommended for non-profit staff and board members.
