ShipShape Board Service Training

May 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$169 for Members / $199 for Nonmembers

Instructor: Eric Schmall

Course Description:
Board Service seminar focused on new and veteran board members. It is designed to educate, encourage, and empower anyone serving on a nonprofit board.

ShipShape, CNPE’s proven nonprofit board governance education program, has been re-packaged into a newly designed, comprehensive one-day offering. Shipshape offers you a simple, engaging, and refreshingly unique guide to governing and managing your nonprofit organization. This newly designed one-day training assures board members clear sailing into a wide open ocean of absorbing ideas and stirring tales illustrating how to skillfully navigate your nonprofit toward mission success.

This experience will focus upon what strong and effective nonprofit governance looks like. It is designed for participants who currently serve as, or are interested in becoming board members. The intent is to help participants appreciate the nature of governance, how governance differs from management, and how the leadership roles and responsibilities of boards, the staff and volunteers differ from one another. We teach how exemplary nonprofit boards function, standards of governing excellence, and what it takes to make boards and individual board members successful in their governing promises.

This session will offer this instruction through lecture, highly interactive conversations and exercises.

Learning Objectives*:

  • Recognize How Boards are To Perform their role in: (1) Financial Oversight (2) Strategic Planning (3) Generating Ideas
  • Understanding the Critical Role of the Board Chair and the Chair’s Relationship with the Board and Executive Director
  • Define Functions of Productive Board Meetings and Meaningful Committees

Lunch will be included.

*Each participant will also receive a copy of the book ShipShape by Eric Schmall.
