From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on June 3, Nonprofit Connect will host its next Board Chair Boot Camp at 125 East 31st Street, Kansas City, MO.

"No matter the length of service, board members often feel under-prepared to take on the wide range of new responsibilities when assuming the role of board chair," explains Nonprofit Connect. Therefore, the Boot Camp is designed to provide attendees a head start on successfully fulfilling their crucial Board role.

Participants will leave the session with a solid grasp of skills and behaviors needed to become highly effective in their role as board chairs. Course content focuses on these key areas:

  • the fundamentals of board service
  • board policy
  • board structure
  • trends
  • leading effective meetings
  • leveraging contacts within the community
  • evaluating staff and board
  • succession planning
  • the board chair/executive director relationship

Boot Camp/Workshop presenters will be:

  • Debra Box. Executive Director Support Kansas City, Inc.
  • Ann Zimmerman, Industry Coordinator, KC STEM Alliance

The cost to attend is $80 for Nonprofit Connect members and $125 for non-members/general admission.
