Boards in Gear: A workshop on what board members need to know to achieve their mission with Nancy Bacon
Wednesday, April 12th from 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This interactive, hands-on workshop covers board responsibilities, operations, development, fundraising, and advocacy. It 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. Strengthening the practice of nonprofit boards within a community will lead to more effective and sustainable results as that community addresses poverty, education, the environment and other critical issues. We'll have fun while we find new ways to strengthen your board.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This workshop is designed for board members and the people who work with them, namely executive directors and program staff. It offers ideas for new board members and those who have served for a long time. It is appropriate for organizations of all sizes, whether they have staff or not.

Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits: Why, what who, and how of nonprofit finance with Joan Alway
Wednesday, June 7th from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Through this interactive, hands-on workshop, we will work through the why, what, who, and how of nonprofit finance. We will dig deeper into two key reports - Balance Sheets and Income Statements - and then cover what board members need to know about IRS Form 990, the intersection of finance and fundraising, and oversight. Healthy finance practice can be habit-forming when people are working within their comfort zones, so we will discuss how to get your organization there. And no finance training is complete without a hearty game of BINGO!
This workshop is aimed at nonprofit board members and nonprofit staff wanting to elevate financial knowledge within their organization. Teams are strongly encouraged. Participants are encouraged to bring their own balance sheets and income statements, as well as a copy of last year's IRS Form 990 for their organization to tie the discussion back to their organization.
