The deadline to register for the upcoming Board Leadership Program has been extended to Monday, June 22nd at 5pm.

Mission Statement:

Greater DC Cares’ Board Leadership Program is a comprehensive training on the roles and responsibilities of serving as a nonprofit Board member. Each participant will engage in seminars focused on models of Board governance, the basic moral and legal obligations of a trustee, financial oversight, and techniques for fundraising, as well as have the opportunity to interact with nonprofit leaders seeking new Board members.

Benefits of serving on a nonprofit Board:

•    Channel your energy to serve a mission about which you are passionate;
•    Strengthen your management skills;
