Are you interested in volunteering on the board of directors of a nonprofit? Do you want to apply your professional and personal experience in a leadership role? Nonprofit board service is a great way to give back to the community! Before you commit, however, it's important to understand the skills you bring to a board, as well as what else you may still need to learn in order to be the most effective board member.

 Charmaine Torma, founder and president of Charmaine Torma Consulting LLC, has been working directly with nonprofit organizations in both development roles and as a consultant for nearly 20 years. She's interacted with her fair share of boards and knows what it takes to put together a high-functioning team that helps propel an organization forward. In this Power Lunch session, Charmaine will provide you with the information and tools you need to move confidently into your next board role.

You'll learn more about: 

  • Roles of the board for a nonprofit
  • Types of boards
  • Board member liability
  • Common board meeting procedures
  • Important things to consider before you say “YES!”


$15 (includes lunch)
