(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) October 4, 2010 - Helping lead a nonprofit organization in today’s challenging and changing environment is heady business. It requires you to be:

  • thoroughly educated in the critical concepts of nonprofit governance

  • up-to-date on the latest developments in compliance

  • committed to serving your organization and community in the best possible manner

BoardSource’s new governance education program, the Certificate of Nonprofit Board Education, is for current and potential nonprofit board members who take their leadership responsibilities seriously and who are committed to becoming valuable boardroom leaders. It covers the fundamental nonprofit governance concepts every board member should understand, including board structure and practices, the roles and responsibilities of board members, and financial and legal oversight. Active engagement in governance is more important now than ever. The IRS is ramping up its scrutiny of the governance practices of nonprofit organizations. Increasingly, funders are requiring their grantees’ board members to receive governance education to ensure that they are wise stewards of funds. And nonprofits everywhere are seeking board members who can contribute their talents from their first day on the board and move rapidly into their roles as strategic fiduciaries. Changing times demand that nonprofit board members be well prepared for their leadership responsibilities. Earning the Certificate of Nonprofit Board Education will help ensure that you are.   There are several ways to earn the Certificate of Nonprofit Board Education.
