Shafer Leadership Academy announces Board Leadership Workshop

May 21, 2013, Muncie IN – The Shafer Leadership Academy (SLA), East Central Indiana’s Community Leadership Academy, has recently announced that this June it will offer its leadership training workshop entitled All Aboard: Board Leadership in Motion. This three-hour workshop is intended for both aspiring and current board members and will provide insights regarding the responsibilities of a typical not-for-profit board member, how individuals can find the right board to serve on, questions to ask when considering board service, and common traits that effective board members share.

All Aboard is ideal for individuals who have a desire to serve on a not-for-profit board but want to learn more about what serving entails and how to find the potential board opportunity that suites their interests and skill sets. “Attending this workshop doesn’t require someone to become a board member but we believe participants will be more confident in their ability to pursue this form of service if they choose to do so,” stated SLA’s Executive Director, Richard Crist.

All Aboard will be offered two (2) times in 2013, with the first opportunity on June 11th 2013.  A second opportunity to attend this workshop will occur this fall.

The registration deadline for All Aboard: Board Leadership in Motion is Friday, May 31, 2013 and the workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 11th from 8:30 am-11:30 am at the Innovation Connector located at 1208 W. White River Blvd. in Muncie. Standard tuition for the workshop is $35.00 and $25.00 for Shafer Leadership Academy Alumni, as well as, $25 for members of the Muncie Young Professionals group.
