Lead to Succeed…A Board Development Primer

 

United Way of Hunterdon County is again offering its Board Development Primer for current and future board members. The well-received program is designed to facilitate the recruitment, development and retention of leaders on boards and committees throughout our community.  This 4-session series appeals to volunteers with all levels of experience.

 

This Board Development Primer Program defines board roles, responsibilities and boundaries.  The program focuses on governance roles, while at the same time addressing the fiduciary roles of board members. Participants will learn how to advocate for and support their cause and be well prepared to take on a committee or Board role, or to better meet the expectations of their current role. The program reinforces the value of recruiting culturally diverse volunteers and then training them to be

effective leaders.

 

“The Board Development Primer course reinforces the skills and knowledge needed to be a successful board member, non-profit professional or active volunteer. Even an experienced philanthropic leader will benefit from this program.”  Justin Eisenberg, United Way of Hunterdon County Board of Trustee, Chair Finance/Audit Committee, SHI International Corp.

 

Participation in all 4 sessions is essential in order to fulfill the requirements for United Way Certification.  Cost is $35, pre-registration is required and space is limited. Dinner will be served.  To RSVP, call 908-782-3414.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Bonnie Duncan, CEO, via phone at 908-782-3414, ext. 22 or bonnie@uwhunterdon.org.
