BoardTalks™ is a facilitated peer learning group that meets once a month for 3 hour-long sessions. Participants from all types of non-profit organizations meet to discuss "board best practices" and to address current challenges facing their board of directors in a confidential and collegial setting. The monthly meetings allow time for participants to acquire and practice new skills in order to be the most effective board members. The sessions are fun, spirited and practical! This cohort group will meet from 5:00pm - 8:00pm on Tuesdays March 4, April 1, May 6, and June 3.|
