What People are Saying
The REALIZE Board Training gave me the confidence to ask the right questions before joining a nonprofit board and better asses the ones I currently serve on. Thanks to the trainings, I have a better understanding of the main functions of a well-operated board as well as acknowledge my role in the grand scheme of it. Every training I have attended I have learned something new.
YLS Advisory Board President
This program is important for young professionals to understand their critical role in board governance. Becoming a board member is a legal and fiduciary responsibility, and requires accountability and to the community and its organizational stakeholders. The program will help young professionals understand their roles & responsibilities, understand the importance of a high-performance board; how to fundraise, and their role in fiscal oversight and accountability.
