Board Training

Nonprofit Board Training Sessions

The Miller Foundation offers quarterly training sessions for Battle Creek non-profit board members, potential board members and staff free of charge. These trainings can be accessed at https://www.nonprofnetwork.org/miller/.
Registration is required for all sessions.

Nonprofit boards have the ultimate responsibility and accountability for the organizations they lead. Does every member of your board understand their legal obligations, basic responsibilities, and duties? We will address current trends, challenges, and climates for organizations in the current year.
