Course description: Board Development

This was a 1-hour 7-week skills course concentrating on the development and function of boards for nonprofit or governmental organizations.  We learned about different types of boards, meeting practices, policies, fund-raising, skills, and recruitment.  We also got to sit in on a meeting of a real board for a community organization.  Since I have been on a couple of boards for animal welfare organizations, this was an extremely useful course in modeling how boards are supposed to function and what members are supposed to do.
