Board Trainings

Training for both new and experienced board members is a key element in MANP’s Get on Board initiative! Recurring programs, include:

Board Roles + Responsibilities

MANP regularly offers a one-hour webinar with an introduction to legal requirements and typical roles of nonprofit board members. Check upcoming events listings for dates.

Board Boot Camp

Since 2014, over 500 organizations have completed this day-long training, which digs deeper into board roles. Through a mix of presentation and interactive exercises, the curriculum offers board members tools and frameworks they can put to use right away to strengthen their stewardship of the organization’s mission. Team attendance is encouraged. Board Boot Camp dates will be listed on our upcoming events listings when scheduled.

“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.”
