Boards in Gear Nonprofit Association of Washington

Event Details

Wednesday, December 7, 2022
4:00pm-7:00pm PT
Seattle, WA

You joined a nonprofit board because you care about the organization’s mission. You want your contributions as a board member to positively affect the issues addressed by the organization. As a board, you want your nonprofit to thrive and make a difference in the communities served by your organization. Whether your nonprofit is just starting or is long established, getting your board in gear can help put your organization on a clear path forward.
 
 
This interactive workshop 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.
 
 
The workshop will cover:
  1. Board responsibilities
  2. Board operations
  3. Composition and development
  4. Fundraising
  5. Advocacy

A light dinner will be provided.

Boards in Gear is Part 1 of the Nonprofit Fundamentals Series.
NAWA will be hosting Part 2 Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits on January 31, and Part 3 Let’s Go Legal on February 16.

Register for the series to strengthen your board’s performance and decision-making. You must register for the series before December 6.
