Shafer Leadership Academy Offers Board Leadership Workshop

October 14, 2013 – Muncie, IN – Shafer Leadership Academy, East Central Indiana’s nonprofit leadership institute, recently announced that it will once again offer the board member training workshop entitled All Aboard: Board Leadership in Motion. The program will take place November 19, 2013 from 8:30am to 11:30am at the Innovation Connector in Muncie, Indiana.

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 Shafer Leadership Academy Executive Director, Richard Crist.

The registration deadline for All Aboard: Board Leadership in Motion is Friday, November 8, 2013. Standard tuition for the workshop is $35.00 or just $25.00 for Shafer Leadership Academy Alumni and members of the Muncie Young Professionals group.
