The series will also include:

  • Participants will engage in active learning about: How do you know when a board is working well? What qualities make for a successful, effective and efficient board?
  • Legal and Program Responsibilities
  • Roles of the board – are you meeting the responsibilities in the “right” way?
  • How do you meet the fiduciary responsibilities?
  • What does a high performing board look like?

All sessions will be from 1:00pm - 3:00pm EDT on the dates below.

This multi-session training will be a practical, interactive program that will provide the basics – the roles and responsibilities of a health center board of directors – while discussing and practicing the application (how to do it) implications.
