Live Webinar: Best Practices for Working with a Board of Directors

Includes a Live Event on 02/20/2020 at 3:00 PM (EST)

Webinar Description

There’s no shortage of reading material about how nonprofit boards of directors are supposed to operate. But when you are the paid or unpaid executive director or the board president who sometimes fills the role of executive director in an all-volunteer organization, you need to be more than book smart to successfully achieve the delicate balance of working for—and with—your board of directors. Join us to hear street smart advice from an executive director and all-volunteer board president as they offer best practices learned from their experience working with a board.

This webinar is part of the StEPs Lab series of online continuing education offered to both StEPs program participants and all others interested in the topic of financial management. This is StEPs Lab 20.

TIME: 3:00 - 4:15 pm EASTERN (Remember to adjust for your time zone)

COST: $40 Members / $65 Nonmembers / $15 discount for StEPs participants with promo code found on StEPs Community website
