Board Training & Development

BOARD MEMBERS ARE SUCCESSFUL, SKILLED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE IN THEIR RESPECTIVE FIELDS.

However, they often lack the knowledge and experience required to be an effective non-profit board member. To make the volunteer leadership experience a positive one, organizations should provide regular training and development opportunities to give leaders the tools they need to be effective in their roles and advance the organization’s mission.

Training is an important part of any board’s development. The first step to strong board performance is a clear understanding of the board’s roles. Board members need training to master their responsibilities in order to better govern, build a strong partnership with staff and advance their organization’s mission.

A senior member of AH’s staff can deliver an engaging and enlightening board training session that leverages our significant experience in a variety of organizations and proven best practices.

We can deliver board training sessions on the following topics or a custom training session based on your organization’s specific needs:

  • Creating and Sustaining a Strategic Board
  • What Makes Up a High Performing Board
  • Board Roles & Responsibilities
  • Volunteer Motivation & Engagement

The time and financial investment in board training and development pays off significantly in better board performance.
