Board Education Seminars

BoardSource offers five educational seminars that can be brought into your boardroom as full- or partial-day sessions.

The first step to strong board performance is a clear understanding of the board’s roles and a shared commitment to leveraging the board’s full potential. BoardSource’s five different educational seminars create the opportunity for boards to come together to focus on core board responsibilities. A BoardSource Certified Governance Trainer will facilitate and create the space for open and honest dialogue about how best to tap into the board as a strategic asset.

The fee for all board education seminars is $6,000 plus associated travel ($5,000 for organizations who are members of BoardSource).
