BoardSource’s governance education program, the Certificate of Nonprofit Board Education, is designed for those who want to understand the major building blocks of an effective nonprofit board.
The six-module, on-demand program covers the fundamental nonprofit governance concepts every nonprofit leader should understand, including board structure and practices, the roles and responsibilities of board members, and financial and legal oversight.
During the course of this certificate program, you will also learn about the identification, recruitment, and orientation of board members; the board-staff partnership; board meetings and the use of committees; the board’s fundraising role; board member motivation, responsibilities, and accountability; and competing governance models and governance trends.

I enjoyed this course. I found many of the graphics and research summaries helpful. The course handouts and extras will be of great use for helping me review the content and go deeper where I want to. Some of the content was basic, but I enjoy refreshing my memory and going back to the fundamentals and foundations. I also found it helpful to see how other people teach this content and it gave me many ideas for how, as a consultant and trainer, I can share this info. with nonprofit leaders. Thanks!
