The work of a board never stops. The Virtual Certificate of Nonprofit Board Consulting covers five critical areas of nonprofit governance and gives consultants the tools they need to address essential, often challenging, conversations in the boardroom.

The online version of the course is a series of sessions on June 14th and 15th, from 9:30 am until 5:30 pm ET. 

BoardSource designed this training for nonprofit consulting professionals, individuals pursuing a career in consulting, and those working closely with nonprofit boards across the sector. Given this certification’s high-level nature, participants should have a working knowledge of nonprofit governance’s basic tenets.

Throughout the course, faculty and participants will discuss virtual and in-person facilitation techniques. The training will also include high-level nonprofit governance concepts, case studies, group work, and discussions of current nonprofit trends.

Upon completing this course, participants will receive the BoardSource Certificate of Nonprofit Board Consulting and an individual BoardSource membership. The BoardSource team will reach out after registering for the course with information on the complimentary membership and accompanying course materials. 

Participation is capped at 30 individuals and will sell out quickly, so we recommend registering soon to ensure your spot. After you register, attendees will receive log in instructions for a Zoom call and other technical a week before the course begins.

Select individuals may be contacted upon completion of this course to gauge their interest in becoming a Certified Governance Consultant and will be invited to present virtually to BoardSource staff. This invitation to present is solely at BoardSource’s discretion and is not a component of the course itself.
