This workshop will cover several aspects of board membership and fundraising, including responsibilities every board member should fulfill to lead a nonprofit organization to success.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Articulate what is legally expected of board members

- Differentiate the role of the chief executive officer/staff versus board members
