Members of Pasadena area nonprofit boards, those considering board service and staff members who interface with boards are invited to a series of Effective Board Workshops hosted by Jericho Road Pasadena. They will be presented on Wednesdays, September 11 and November 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The upcoming workshop on September 11th will be held at the Tournament of Roses, 391 S. Orange Grove Blvd., Pasadena.
Registration for the Sept. 11th workshop is $45 per person at EBResourceDevelopment.eventbrite.com.
Although nonprofit boards are tasked with providing governance, resource development and leadership, many board members have never learned the basic expectations of board service. These workshops will provide the orientation needed to effectively serve on a board. Subjects include:
September 11: Resource Development: strategies and practices for specific non-profits, when and how to ask for charitable support, board members’ necessary role in the ask.
November 13: Nonprofit Financial Management: the board’s role in financial management, budgeting, financial plan execution, documentation and reporting, plus special topics like taxes and fees.
The upcoming September workshop will be conducted by nonprofit consultant Heather Tunis. Ms. Tunis has over thirty years of experience and leadership in organizational effectiveness and development, capacity building, management and philanthropy in the nonprofit sector. Her professional background includes positions as founding Executive Director of a multidisciplinary arts center, and Director of Development for an internationally recognized artists residency program.
