Board Leadership for the Arts
Board Leadership for the Arts is a training program working to prepare business professionals for effective volunteer board leadership within local, nonprofit, arts or cultural organizations. Utilizing official BoardSource® curriculum and instruction from a BoardSource® Certified Governance Trainer, participants learn the fundamentals of board roles and responsibilities; board-staff relations; board meetings and the function of committees; and a board’s role in fundraising. Individuals who successfully complete the program demonstrate an understanding and commitment to upholding professional standards of nonprofit board governance.
Through Board Leadership for the Arts, nonprofits also have the opportunity to interact with business professionals who complete training and seek board leadership positions. Although the program assists organizations in securing qualified board member prospects, placements are not guaranteed.
PLEASE NOTE: Board Leadership for the Arts plans to return this summer. More details coming soon.
