More than 100 Attended “Boards in Gear” Training

On Sept. 11, 103 nonprofit board and staff members attended a free four-hour nonprofit board training experience in Coupeville.  Provided by Washington Nonprofits, the course is the only board training sanctioned by the Office of the Secretary of State.

Boards in Gear covered the five main areas of strong board practice:

  • connection to cause
  • roles and responsibilities
  • how to build a great board
  • sustain a great board
  • engage board members in fundraising

Washington Nonprofits will be bringing another dynamic training opportunity to Whidbey Island in November, this time focused on fundraising: “Ask, Thank, Report, Repeat.” The fundraising fundamentals you will learn during this session can be applied to direct mail, special events, and major donor gift acquisition.  Check the website for information on how to register.
