(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Washington, DC - June 2, 2010 - BoardSource, the premier source of cutting-edge thinking and resources related to nonprofit boards, announces the BoardSource Digital Classroom -- self-guided, online training for nonprofit board members.

When nonprofit professionals have little time to spare, it’s still possible to:

  • prepare for nonprofit board service

  • sharpen governance skills

  • ensure that the time devoted to a nonprofit board is well-spent 

  • equip oneself with the knowledge needed to become an effective board leader.

The first entry in the BoardSource Digital Classroom, Effective Board Leadership Today: Understanding Nonprofit Board Service is a go-at-your-own-pace, interactive training that covers the essentials of nonprofit governance.

In under an hour of online instruction, students will become knowledgeable about:

  • responsibilities as a board member

  • the board’s role as a collective

  • the board-staff relationship

  • best practices for boards and committees

  • important sector trends.

There is no better or more efficient way to prepare oneself for becoming a valuable leader in the boardroom.  The cost of the course is $69 for BoardSource members and $99 for nonmembers.

More BoardSource Digital Classroom courses are currently under development.  They will soon be part of a comprehensive certificate program.
