All About Boards Spring 2024



Are you looking to strengthen your board’s effectiveness?

Hoping to bring more clarity to your board’s roles and responsibilities? 

Would your board benefit from a strengthened vision for the future?

Does your board have the skills and representation it needs to do its work?

For all nonprofits, the Board of Directors plays a critical role in making strategic decisions that help to advance an organization’s mission and positive impact. For board members to fulfill this role, it is crucial that directors and staff are trained in the responsibilities and demands of effective governance. 

Pillar is pleased to offer a Spring 2024 edition of All About Boards, the 13th time Pillar has offered this go-to Board training in London and area. The All About Boards program is designed to provide you with the foundational elements to help you govern effectively while introducing you to emerging issues in board governance. This training provides actionable resources and guidance so nonprofit organizations can move their governance from good to great.
