This course is one of nine UNA Credential offerings. Each course is designed to move your organization to the next level in adopting and following best practices--resulting in a vibrant, sustainable nonprofit. We encourage you to invite staff, volunteers, and board members to accompany you. Expanded participation broadens perspective, builds cooperation, and lightens the workload. UNA's Credential in Board Governance provides state-of-the-art information condensed into two days of classroom instruction taught by our Subject Matter Expert, Rebecca Glather. You’ll take this deeper understanding back to your organization and begin to apply it to your policies and practices. Then you'll reconvene at your consulation with our Subject Matter Expert to review your practices and ask questions specific to your organization. Once you’ve documented best-practices at your organization, your organization earns the Board Governance Badge.
