Event Details

Wednesday, March 8, 2023
9:00am-1:00pm PT
Walla Walla Community College
Main Building D
500 Tausick Way, Walla Walla, WA 99362

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 meal will be provided. 

Boards in Gear is part of the 3-part Nonprofit Fundamentals series.
Sign up for the series and attend Boards in Gear on March 8, Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits on April 5, and Let’s Go Legal on April 19.
You must register for the series by March 6.


This event is free, thanks to a partnership with Sherwood Trust
