Nonprofit Board Education & Training

The Nonprofit Center has developed a suite of Leadership Development Programs for High Performing Boards.

High-Intensity Board Leadership Development Experience – Full Day Program for the Committed Board Member
A full-day immersion into the roles, responsibilities, liabilities, and rewards, our full-day program is the definitive path to high impact, meaningful board membership. Our “best in class” program is for existing boards or individuals who are truly serious about excellence in board service and those organizations committed to professional nonprofit board development.  Ideal for:

  • individuals considering joining a board to fulfill their interest in community service
  • current board members with less than two years’ experience
  • longer-serving board members who want a formal reminder of best practices
  • civic-minded corporations that value community service by their employees

This program is also offered as a customized on-site group education experience, as the consummate orientation for a high functioning nonprofit board, or for savvy businesses with personnel being groomed for leadership roles (see below).

Best Practices in Board Governance – MEMBERPLUS BENEFIT
You can take a giant leap forward for free by joining The Nonprofit Center at the MemberPlus level, which entitles you to an approximately 2.5 hour on-site “Best Practices in Board Governance” presentation by one of our governance experts.  This session gives insight into effectively performing the roles and responsibilities of board members, including legal liability, strategic planning, financial management, chief executive assessment and organizational performance evaluation.  Any board committed to excellence, as well as those beginning a major undertaking such as strategic planning or a fundraising campaign, will be more effective as a result of this presentation.  For renewing MemberPlus organizations, we offer advanced trainings in fundraising, board recruitment and retention, finances, succession planning, and more, building on the skills you’ve already acquired.

 “The Board raved about the program.  They seem truly grateful for the guidance and kind of shocked that they have underplayed their roles for such a long time.  We are at a tipping point to become a more sustainable organization and hopefully this training will be the push in the right direction.”
-Kim Andrews, Executive Director, Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia

 “When I attend seminars, I come away personally thinking they are successful if I have one new idea to consider and possibly implement.  I left {The Nonprofit Center Board Training) with no fewer than 12 ideas for consideration!  Your knowledge base is phenomenal and your teaching expertise is evident.  I am very hopeful you have helped to move DAP forward.”-Mary V.Z. Wachterhauser, Esq., Board Member, Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County.
