Junior League of New Orleans Opens Registration for Non-Profit Board Training Program
Two-day workshop set for January 20 and January 27
NEW ORLEANS – The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) once again is hosting its award-winning annual nonprofit board training program, Get on Board. Now in its tenth year, the two-day workshop is open to nonprofit organizations and individuals seeking training relevant to nonprofit leadership.
“Many nonprofit organizations in the New Orleans Metropolitan area are working diligently to improve our region while facing enormous challenges,” said JLNO President Kristen Cocke Koppel. “By addressing important topics such as fundraising, sustainability and partnerships, JLNO’s Get on Board program equips leaders with the skills necessary to help our local nonprofits achieve their missions.”
Through engaging presentations from nonprofit experts and interactive role-playing, participants learn a board member’s responsibilities and how these relate to others within the organization. Workshop topics include financial policies and fiduciary duties, legal considerations, meeting and committee management, strategic planning, effective leadership development and fundraising.
Participants will gain increased competence and confidence to develop and maintain a well-run nonprofit organization. Upon successful completion of the course, JLNO will facilitate introductions for participants with local nonprofits for a board of director's position or a board internship.
In 2012, the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) awarded JLNO its Community Impact Award for Get on Board, and over 600 individuals have received Get on Board training and placement with over 70 nonprofit organizations.
The two-day workshop will take place on January 20 and January 27. Each session begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. The deadline for application submission is January 12, 2018. For more information about Get on Board or to apply, visit www.jlno.org/getonboard.
