Nonprofit Board Boot Camp

4:30 pm–8:30 pm
Carol Welte, 402-374-2929,
Nebraska Extension and the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands are partnering to provide a Nonprofit Board Boot Camp. The program is Thursday, Oct. 5 at the University of Nebraska Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center (ENREC), August N. Christenson Building near Mead, NE. The address is 1071 County Road G. The program runs from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and a light dinner is included.

Rural communities are supported by numerous nonprofits organized to manage local projects and events. It’s these projects that that make Nebraska the good life. Come fall, nonprofits prepare for a new year by recruiting new members.

While willing to serve in new leadership roles, many people come onto boards with no familiarity or knowledge of how nonprofit organizations function, let alone the legal requirements. Since rules and regulations governing nonprofits change, it’s important to update seasoned board members, too.

Presenters will provide the latest information all board members need to know to keep their nonprofit organizations compliant and boards operating smoothly. Topics include:

• Mission and Vision, Board Structure, and Meaningful Engagement
• Finance and Compliance
• Recruitment, Team Building, Improvement and Evaluation

There are various registration options and discounts for multiple board members to attend the training. Credit card registrations available at Call Nebraska Extension Educator, Carroll Welte at 402-374-2929 or email, to obtain a registration form to use for paying by check. Registration deadline is September 28.
