The role of a nonprofit board member has always been significant but never as demanding as today.

A board’s fundamental purpose is to hold a nonprofit accountable to the community. So how do you identify which organizational roles belong to board members and which to executive staff?

Join me on Friday, July 6, for Nonprofits TALK facilitated workshop/discussion on the roles and responsibilities of board members.  

Lou Klein, attorney and former chairman of the Ulster County Legislature, will be special guest to discuss board roles and answer common questions about board service. 

Come for strategic information and leave with more board knowledge for advancing your organization.

NPT meets at The Lace Mill165 Cornell Street in Kingston; free parking on South Manor Avenue and Progress Street. Come to the West Gallery, 8:30-10 A.M. Come join us for bagels and coffee and conversation on July 6.  Prompt start and finish.

Contact Susan with questions. See — and hear — you at Nonprofits TALK!
