San Juan College Board Basics Training

Do you serve on or work for a board or a non-profit or governmental organization?  If so, plan to attend San Juan College’s Volunteer Center Board Basics Training.

Learn about your legal and financial responsibilities and how to be a part of an effective, efficient board. 

Four individual sessions are offered from 4 to 6 p.m., on Monday, May 13; Monday, May 20; Monday, June 3; and Monday, June 10 in room 1614 at San Juan College.

The May 13 session will focus on recruitment, orientation, subcommittee work, acknowledgement and retention of board members, self-evaluation and strategic planning.

The May 20 session will focus on legal issues and insurance coverage.

The June 3 session will cover mission statements, running effective meetings, by-laws, Roberts Rules of Order and board models.

The June 10 session will cover fundraising, fiscal oversight and accountability.

This series of workshops was developed in response to a strong community desire for more formal training on the basics of developing, operating, and overseeing non-profit or advisory councils.

The sessions are co-sponsored by the San Juan College Volunteer Center, City of Farmington, and Leadership San Juan.  They are open to the public, but registration is required.

For specific session information and to register, call the San Juan College Volunteer Center at 505-566-3293.
