Sign Up for Camp
Board Boot Camp, Sept 20th, Bangor
MANP’s Board Boot Camps offer essential training for new and experienced board members, providing them with practical information, resources, and tools that they can put to use right away to further their organizations’ missions.
“Board Boot Camp was just fantastic. I was there with three members of the board of our small nonprofit. We learned so much. I left feeling like the very new board finally understood the Board/Executive Director relationship. It was amazing to watch all of us learning and working together.”

Plant the Seeds
