A Variety of Learning Options: The materials can be used for board

Board to participate in the training program with you real-time, view the
training program on-demand at their individual discretion, watch all or
selected parts of the program together at an annual planning meeting, or use

Training Topics: This training program has been designed in
response to the expressed concern that it can sometimes take new board
members several months or more to fully understand their roles and
responsibilities. Just-In-Time Board Orientation will provide a clear, crisp
picture of your board member’s responsibilities in policy development,
strategic planning, fiduciary duties, fundraising, and oversight functions.
This session will provide information, tools and techniques needed to bring
new board members up to speed quickly. It will increase their confidence and
their productivity in board and committee meetings right from the start. As
a result, new board members will be better able to “hit the ground running.”
Just-in-Time Board Orientation can even be offered to prospective board
members to assist them in making an informed decision about whether to join
your board. The session can also help current board leaders re-focus their
efforts. Participants receive a board orientation resource packet.
Who Will Benefit: New board members, prospective board members,
individuals thinking of joining a board and looking for a convenient way to
find out what board service entails, executive directors, chairpersons of
board nominating, governance, and training and development committees. The
program is also a great refresher on the basics for current board members.
