New Get on Board Programs!

Do you want to take your board service to a new level? If so, we would like to share with you three new Get on Board programs. The programs are: Board Boot Camp 2.0, Governance by the Glass, and Governance Outside the Box. All of these new programs are to keep with our goal to train, connect, and support emerging leaders and the nonprofits they wish to serve.

Get on Board

Board Boot Camp 2.0

Board Boot Camp 2.0 is designed as a deeper dive into the thick of nonprofit governance. The session will begin with an overview of key governance principles, roles and responsibilities. From there, we will highlight two areas of growing significance for nonprofit boards: financial oversight and strategic thinking. The session will culminate in case studies that allow participants to apply the key governance concepts to real world settings.

Board Boot Camp is a prerequisite for the 2.0 course. Mike Stone, Impact Strategies, Inc. and Erin Whittle, Whittle Consulting, LLC will be presenting this workshop.

The first 2.0 class will be offered Saturday February 27, 2016 from 9 am to 1 pm – Allen County Public Library, Main in the Board Room. A second session will be offered later in the year. Register for Board Boot Camp 2.0 by clicking here. Cost is $15 and due by February 27th.

Governance by the Glass

Governance by the Glass is an early evening gathering for educational conversations with peers. Foellinger Foundation’s Stewardship Award Nominees, board members, emerging leaders, and nonprofit professionals will have the opportunity to connect and discuss governance topics in a social setting.

First Governance by the Glass is scheduled for March 8, 2016. RSVP information and more details will be available next month.

Governance Outside the Box

Governance Outside the Box is an interactive training session and networking evening event. Discuss a governance topic over dinner with your peers and stay for a scripted mock board meeting to highlight issues that arise in meetings and how to overcome those common subjects. The Get on Board Committee is partnering with YLNI, Arts United, Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne and Foellinger Stewardship Award Nominees.

Save the date for this event – April 12th at the Arts Lab Black Box Theater. RSVP information and more details will be available soon!
