THANKS FOR ATTENDING THE BOARD DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP!

Lots of useful information was shared yesterday at the Board Development Workshop for nonprofits. Emily Croak, from Aly Sterling Philanthropy, covered the role and responsibilities of board members and how they contribute to the overall sustainability of an organization.

This nonprofit workshop was the last workshop in a series of four sponsored by Shalom Counseling & Mediation Center, United Way of Williams County and the Bryan Area Foundation. Stay tuned for upcoming workshops in 2020!
