Board Boot Camp


April 25, 2017 5:00-8:00 pm

Neshaminy Activity Center

1842 Brownsville Rd, Feasterville-Trevose, PA 19053


The Board Boot Camp program has been designed for both new and experienced board members to learn or refresh their skills on being an effective nonprofit board member. This does not happen by accident, but rather by thoughtful and consistent attention to the role of board members in your organization.

We focus on skills effective board members possess. By structuring the evening into two tracks, we are able to direct the discussion at the appropriate level for each group.


Cost is $35 for the first person and $15 pp for each additional board member from the same organization.

Freshman Track ~ for individuals who have served for less than two years on a nonprofit board and are interested in learning about the more general duties of board members.

Advanced Track ~ for individuals who have experience serving for many years or on a variety of boards and are looking to gain insight on the tools used by more mature boards.
