There’s a pretty steep learning curve that comes with joining a board. Without proper guidance, adjusting to a new board position can be intimidating and lengthy. Worst case scenario:  some board members never find their footing and leave at or before the conclusion of their term.  Even if your new board member has previous experience serving, they’ve never served on your board. That's why board member training is so important!  Let's discuss key board training topics and strategies that will empower new members to be proactive from the start of their service. Empowered board members do more for your organization.
