DIY NFP Board Training for Non-Profits - Governance and Efficiency

$1,200.00 + GST

NFP Templates offers Do-It-Yourself Board training for non profits. The DIY NFP Governance and Effectiveness Training for Board Members Kit saves your organisation time and money while giving you the flexibility to train your Board members when and where you wish… and as often as you need to. Conduct your own training for existing and incoming board members without engaging expensive consultants. Specifically designed for the Australian NFP Sector, this short, punchy and entertaining three-hour training program has now been delivered to more than 10,000 not-for-profit Committee and Board Members.

Board training for non profits has to be adaptable to the challenges that board members face. You hope the entire board is available for governance training, but life gets in the way and you have to train someone who could not make it. Boards also change members from time to time in non-profits. The DIY NFP Governance and Effectiveness Training for Board Members Kit is your opportunity to take control. NFP Templates teaches your trainer how to deliver the material via an online one on one session. This is included in the cost of the kit. We also offer support and upgrades for the kit for two years after you purchase it. Of course, you can continue to deliver the course after the two years has passed.
