Like any other business, talented leadership is key to success for nonprofits. Effective board governance ensures nonprofit organizations fulfill their missions and create positive change in the community. Service on an effective nonprofit board requires time and comes with several legal duties and responsibilities.

Because of this, HCCF provides multiple nonprofit board training opportunities throughout the year to help nonprofit board and staff members serving Harrison County learn about the most critical elements of nonprofit boards of directors. The next training opportunity, called Building Dynamic Boards of Directors, will take place at HCCF on two Tuesdays – Oct. 16 and Oct. 23 – from 4 to 8 p.m. both days.

Building Dynamic Boards of Directors is presented by June Miller. Miller is a nonprofit consultant and a BoardSource certified board governance trainer, with more than 20 years of corporate and nonprofit training experience.

Participants will learn about nonprofit board development, fundraising, strategic planning, managing change, and other essential topics for nonprofits and boards. Also, participants will be able to network with one another and ask questions.

HCCF encourages nonprofit board and staff members to take advantage of this training opportunity, because nonprofits that apply for grant funding need to have at least one current board member who has completed an HCCF-approved nonprofit board governance training program. Participants must attend both days to fulfill this requirement and receive a certificate.

Those interested should send a check for $200 to HCCF by Wednesday, Oct. 10 to make a reservation. HCCF will reimburse the individual or organization upon successful completion of the training program.
