Event description

Thank you to everyone who attended Board Basics 2016!

Board Leadership Calgary is proud to announce that Board Basics is back for our 3rd year!

SAVE THE DATE for MAY 28 for Board Basics for Non-Profits: Learning Event 2016!

Would you like to be a more effective non-profit board member?

Do you want to increase your understanding about board responsibilities, governance, and leadership?

Are you interested in improving your board’s strategic and operational effectiveness?

Do you want to know more about recommended and best practices for non-profit organizations?

This day-long event will feature a number of engaging and informative basic level workshops that will focus on board governance fundamentals and best practices for the voluntary sector, and provide helpful resources, new ideas, and networking opportunities.

In 2014 Board Leadership Calgary launched its first event with overwhelming response and a waitlist to get in. We’re back in 2016 with a variety of presenters and 16 workshop topics to choose from so be sure to register early to avoid disappointment!

Organized by: Community Development Unit of Alberta Culture and Tourism, CommunityWise Resource Centre, Ethno-Cultural Council of Calgary, Federation of Calgary Communities, and Sport Calgary.
