Nonprofit leadership is critical for maintaining a thriving nonprofit sector and delivering services to our board development program. Our goal is to create an ongoing orientation that gives active board members an introduction to the nonprofit sector and provides support, knowledge, and skill-bui lding around the fundamentals of nonprofit board participation.

Designed specifically for current nonprofit board members, this series includes speakers from the community to address the day-to-day details and real-life responsibilities of board service. Whether your board is 3 years old or 30, with a large staff or no staff, your role as a board member is critical. 

Participants will be provided with a board book at the first session. Handouts and information from each session will be added to the book for ongoing reference. Each participant will also receive their own copy of the BoardSource publication, Ten Basic Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards.

Program Participants:

  • Should be current board members at a nonprofit(s) in northern New Mexico.
  • Will be drawn from a range of experiences and organizational focus areas.
  • Will form a cohort with networking and mutual support encouraged.
  • Are expected to attend all 6 of the sessions (with mandatory attendance at the first session on April 5, 2019).
  • Can expect a modest amount of preparation for each session.

Group size will be small with no more than 20 participants.

Session content includes:

  • Nonprofits and your community
  • Legal responsibilities of board members
  • Board governance and leadership
  • Board recruitment (including diversifying your board) and assessment
  • Finance for boards
  • Fundraising for boards
  • Relationships with staff and fellow board members
