To find driven and passionate professionals committed to strengthening Chicago’s nonprofits, CFW offers Board Member Boot Camp EXPRESS. These 1-4 hour sessions are designed for companies and professional organizations that encourage civic engagement among their employees and members.
While there is certainly a need for great leaders to govern Chicago’s nonprofit organizations, engaging in board service also offers multiple advantages and opportunities to those seeking personal and/or professional growth. Through board service, you will expand your network, strengthen your personal profile, sharpen your business acumen, and enhance your project and team management skills.
Join these groups in bringing Board Member Boot Camp Express to your office or next association meeting!
Our staff customize the content to meet your group’s needs and come to you to facilitate the training.
Program Topics May Include:
Following the training, participants are invited to attend our biannual Networking Night to mix and mingle with local nonprofit organizations seeking board members. Participants may also connect with Board Boot Camp alumni in our Board Boot Camp LinkedIn group.
Customized trainings start at $2,500. Training can occur over the lunch hour or for a couple of hours during the day; you choose the time that is most convenient for your employees or members, and we will conduct the training at your office or preferred location.
