UAS to host nonprofit board member training session at Egan Library
Many nonprofit organizations struggle with conducting meetings, committee organization, developing a working relationship with employees and other aspects of being a board member.
Jim Douglas, resource development and youth agent with University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service, will be offering a "Nonprofit Board Training Meeting" from 7 to 10 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2004 in room 109 of the new Egan Library complex at UAS. The program is co-sponsored by Soroptimist International.
The course covers rights and responsibilities of board members, legal ramifications of being a member, how to organize more effective meetings, working with hired help, developing committees and will answer individual questions.
It is not necessary that every member of your board attend.
A handout will be made available that can be duplicated for your own board members. The class costs $10 at the door with seating available for up to 40 people.
To enroll, please call CES at 465-8749.
