Board leadership mini-series to be offered
Submitted by David Key
The Meadowlark Extension District is hosting their first online three-session board leadership mini-series this winter. Designed to provide basic training for members of community-based boards, the series recently was redesigned and will now be offered in four blocks of related lessons. The training is free.
“Informed and committed board members are the key to healthy, effective boards and committees in our Kansas communities. Whether you are a member of a church board, a township board, a United Way agency board or a rural water board, this training is appropriate for you.”
Session one of the new format will kick-off Tuesday, Feb. 25, with an introduction to the lessons offered in the redesigned format, followed by a session on how organized groups function and what your role is when asked to serve.
Session two will be held Tuesday, March 3, offering a session of the duties and responsibilities of non-profit board members and how to organize and lead productive meetings.
The final session of this three-part mini-series will be held Tuesday, March 10, discussing how to develop a meeting agenda and basic parliamentary procedure.
All sessions will be offered at no cost and live via Zoom Conferencing or conference call from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with a recorded link available after the lesson is offered.
Registration is due by the close of business on Thursday, Feb. 18, and to register online go to: https://tinyurl.com/bdleader, or contact David Key at the Meadowlark Extension District office in Seneca at 785-336-2184 or by email at [email protected].edu.
