Joining the Team: Covering Your Governance Bases
Social Venture Partners is offering a fundamentals of board governance training in Nederland, on Tuesday May 5, 8-10 am, at the very reasonable cost of $30/$24 (see details below).
Board members who have attended recent SVP trainings with the presenter, Emily Davis, have been extremely pleased these trainings (!). We hope that as many board members and directors as possible will attend this event!
SVP offers the reduced $24 price (normally $30) to organizations who purchase an 8 pack (contact Olga at SVP). NANA has arranged the $24 price for any Nederland-area nonprofit staff/board member, through TEENS Inc (bring your check to TEENS Inc and speak with Stephen LeFaiver regarding registration; registration deadline: TBA ).
