LONGVIEW: Boards in Gear

"This workshop was very empowering and gave me the confidence to make big changes."

- Participant in Bellingham

 
Boards play an important role in the success of any organization. They move forward an organization’s mission, and they steward the assets and relationships of that organization to keep it out of harm. Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment and other critical issues.
 

This interactive, hands-on workshop will cover board responsibilities, operations, development, fundraising, and advocacy. It is based on the Boards in Gear resources developed in partnership with some of our state’s leading board experts. You will leave with concrete action steps, tools, and connections.Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment and other critical issues.
