What I’ve Learned from Serving on a Non-Profit Board 

Date: June 21, 2022

Time: 12-1:00 PM

Serving on a non-profit board can provide the opportunity to both contribute to, and learn from, the experience.

In this interactive workshop, participants will: 

  • Consider the size and type of organization that is the best fit for them 
  • Learn what it means to be an “engaged” board member 
  • Identify ways to maximize both their impact and their personal growth through board service
