Board Orientation Training with Dr. Mary Hiland

January 22 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The Standards of Excellence Committee is pleased to invite you to a training with Dr. Mary Hiland, Ph.D. of Hiland Consulting focused on nonprofit board member orientation.

Effective board member orientation is one of the most important ways a nonprofit leader can ensure that their board is a strategic asset in advancing their organization’s mission.  Yet in a survey 75% of board members reported that they had never received a formal orientation about what is means to be a nonprofit board member. No wonder one of the most requested training topics for boards centers on board member roles and responsibilities!

Join Dr. Mary Hiland on Friday, January 22nd to learn the three most frequent mistakes nonprofit leaders make in orienting their board members and how to avoid them. You’ll also learn:

  • What to consider in designing your orientation process
  • A leadership framework for presenting board members’ roles and responsibilities
  • 3 legal duties and implications for your board members

Cost: Pay What You Can ($10 suggested donation)

More about our speaker: Mary Hiland served as a nonprofit executive for 26 years and has spent the last 16 years consulting and coaching nonprofits with a special focus on boards. She hosts a podcast entitled Inspired Nonprofit Leadership.
