The Souris-Glenwood Community Development Corporation is pleased to offer some professional development for local non-profit boards, free of charge (a savings of $95/participant!). Please share this with groups you are involved in.

You are invited to join us for this evening workshop:

Volunteer Manitoba is coming to Souris! We have partnered with the Souris-Glenwood Community Development Corporation to offer non-profits a chance to learn about board governance.


Ever wonder what is the role of the board? Maybe you know the value of a refresher?


Join us on October 20th from 6pm – 9pm to learn about the roles and responsibilities of a non-profit board.


Topics Covered Include:

  • Key roles and responsibilities of the board and its members
  • Common board governance structures and which one best fits your organization
  • How committees can support the work of the board
  • Understanding bylaws, policies and procedures
  • Identifying the legal duties and liabilities of the board


Who should attend?

This workshop was designed to assist individuals with little (or no) board governance experience, those who would like to refresh their knowledge, or those who are working with boards that have gotten a little off track. Even the most seasoned board member is encouraged to attend.
