Event Topic: 

Could your organization use help clarifying and enhancing the role of your Board of Directors? Join us to learn key board responsibilities, expectations, and best practices, with a focus on financial oversight.
Learning Objectives

  • Learn the governance and financial management responsibilities of board members.
  • Identify legally required and recommended standard practices for nonprofit Boards of Directors.
  • Create a board development action plan using the New Mexico Nonprofit Principles and Practices Companion Workbook.
  • Review board recruitment and development resources available in New Mexico.

Your Board of Directors is responsible for providing overall leadership and strategic direction for the organization. This workshop will help board members and executive directors get a clear perspective on what that looks like in practice. The workshop will begin with an overview of the governance and financial management responsibilities of board members, including legal requirements and recommended standard practices. The second half of the workshop will have nonprofits creating an action plan to identify, prioritize, and achieve your board development goals.  Using the New Mexico Nonprofit Principles & Practices Guide as a learning tool, workshop participants will think through specific topics such as board member giving requirements, board orientation, board chair responsibilities and policy and accountability.
The Los Alamos Community Foundation will provide all attendees with their own copy of the New Mexico Nonprofit Principles & Practices Guide.
