About the session:

Our board governance session of the ABC’s of 501c3’s was created to assist nonprofit leaders – both staff and board members – to understand the unique role of the board in relation to nonprofit organizations. This is a safe space to ask the hard questions about how to recruit, engage, and retain board members; what best practices suit your organization; how to understand what the board’s role and responsibilities are; and how to enable the board to create success for the nonprofit.

Participants are encouraged to ask questions about all aspects of board governance. Nonprofit professionals experienced in board governance will answer questions and suggest resources so you never feel alone.

Participants can ask questions anonymously by sending questions prior to the session to, or ask live during the session. The session will be recorded and made available to participants and WVNPA members as an ongoing resource.

In the ABC’s of 501c3’s, no question is too big or too small and there are no dumb questions. You never know who else you may be helping by asking your question!

We can’t wait to see you there!
