You’re already a proven leader; that’s why your board elected you board chair. And now it’s relying on you to provide the leadership to help your organization advance its mission and have new, positive impacts on your community.
Leadership Certificate for Nonprofit Board Chairs
This education and training program will help you become an exceptional board leader — one who not only understands his or her roles and responsibilities but who also is a generative and strategic thinker; who asks questions and seeks knowledge to better understand the opportunities, challenges, and threats that affect today’s nonprofits; who empowers the board to move forward and build organizational capacity. Professional development for board chairs has been lacking; this unique opportunity allows you to connect with a governance expert as well as your peers to conquer the unique challenges and issues that encompass the board chair position.
Use this exceptional opportunity to engage in a lively discussion about leadership and governance challenges with your board chair peers from across the country. At the end of the program, you will have earned your Leadership Certificate for Nonprofit Board Chairs and feel energized and better prepared to lead your board and help your organization achieve its mission.
A significant part of the in-person version of this leadership certificate program is the sharing of experiences among board chairs. It is therefore intended for board chairs or individuals who are a board chair-elect or in a position designated to become board chair. We encourage board members to attend the Certificate of Nonprofit Board Education program.
