For anyone who serves on a board, works with boards, or works with a nonprofit organization, a great training opportunity is available this month.
A Nonprofit Board Training will be offered Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at The Newnan Centre, 1515 Lower Fayetteville Rd., Newnan. The event is hosted by The Newnan-Coweta Chamber, the Fayette Chamber of Commerce and the Coweta Community Foundation. Registration begins at 8am with the session running from 8:30am to Noon.
Topics covered will include the Importance of Nonprofits; Good Governance and Board Roles; Setting Strategic Direction; Committee Dynamics; and Risk Management.
Attendees will learn the importance of serving on a board, understanding duties and developing high performance leadership that can advance the mission and goals of the organization. This workshop is perfect for nonprofit staff members and volunteer leaders seeking to learn about developing strategic direction, roles and responsibilities of the Directors (fiduciary, mission, finances) and the increased scrutiny on Exempt Organizations.
The workshop will feature Robert C. Harris, CAE, a nationally acclaimed speaker and expert on boards of directors and association management.
Believing that nonprofits should be as efficient as any commercial business, Harris has studied thousands of them, authored books on association management and traveled the world to help organizations in countries like Japan and Ukraine.
Having received multiple awards throughout his career and dubbed the “Martha Stewart of association management,” Harris is actively promoting the impact of nonprofits in America and sharing his tips for success.
