Staff members are discouraged from attending without a board member.

This Board Excellence Workshop is an interactive program that covers the most important aspects of boards. Participants will leave with clarity about the roles and responsibilities of the board of directors as a governing body and the roles of staff members versus board members.
Participants will explore:
· What it means to be legal and socially accountable
· Principles of sound financial oversight
· The board’s role in fundraising
· The role of the board as "employer”
· Board conduct and how to develop a well-rounded, effective board of directors
Each participant will receive Maryland Nonprofits’ Board Excellence Handbook (a $25 value).
