The success of a Children's Advocacy Center depends largely on the effectiveness of its leadership. In a nonprofit organization, leadership begins with the Board of Directors. People are motivated to join boards for many reasons, but most who become board members never receive any formal guidance on the roles and responsibilities of boards. Board Boot Camp will help new board members feel more comfortable in their roles and will remind seasoned board members of the importance of their positions in the healthy functioning of the CAC.

This training will assist board members in:

  • Developing an understanding of the nonprofit sector - including what distinguishes nonprofit organizations from for-profit companies, sources of revenue for nonprofits, and the life stages of a nonprofit organization.
  • Discussing the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit board members:
    • Ensure healthy governance
    • Lead strategically
    • Ensure financial stability
    • Be an ambassador
    • Supervise & support the Executive Director
