Most Board members would benefit greatly by receiving basic training in their very important roles and responsibilities in their communities.
There are lots of good reasons to conduct board training. Among the more obvious are:
- You have just formed the board
- You have new board members—many of whom have never served on a board/council
- You have just experienced a significant turnover of board members
- Your board may have been in existence for a while, but they have never received any formal training on how to be a board or what kind of board they want to be
- Your board has been experiencing commitment, conflict and trust issues which are major challenges.
