Nonprofit organizations play a central role in the democratic process by providing a means for individuals to deliberate on public policies and decisions that affect them. To the extent possible, nonprofit organizations should engage constituents in public policy and advocacy activities as a means to fulfilling their missions and promoting community interests.
Wondering what you can do to advocate for the communities you serve? Come join your colleagues for a training on the rules related to nonprofit advocacy.
Marshall Board Governance Training
Friday, August 17 | 1 – 4 p.m. | Marshall
$45 for members / $75 for nonmembers
Running a nonprofit organization in a rural region is very different from what our colleagues do in metro regions. Nonprofits in rural areas do not need a give-get-or-get off approach to boards similar to a metro region, but need a more engaged board who can also support fundraising and management. How do you go about building a successful board that can be a partner with you as the executive? How can you find board members who will be active members as well as support your mission? We will find answers to these questions as well as why rural nonprofits need to find a different board member than what other nonprofits need in larger metro regions.
