The McCarthy Center's approach to board development is based on best practices that are common to the most dynamic and effective nonprofit boards. This training is designed for board members who are new to nonprofit board service or would like to be more effective.

This two-hour session teaches:

  • Differences in nonprofit and for-profit entities and board service
  • Legal considerations
  • Board member "must-do" roles and responsibilities
  • How to be an effective trustee

Staff, prospective board members, and existing board members are all welcome. Special appointments can be made for large groups or whole boards.

Cost: The $40 fee includes theĀ Board Boot Camp Participant Guide. Nonprofits can bring the training to their boards by appointment for $300.

Board Boot Camp was developed by MAP for Nonprofits, the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, and the Larned A. Waterman Iowa Nonprofit Resource Center.
