DSAIA Opens Online Learning Center

Thu, September 01, 2016 12:44 PM | Anonymous member

Recruiting board members is getting harder. According to BoardSource's recent Leading with Intent Report, nonprofits boards are recruiting for three positions on average. And 58% of chief executives say it is difficult to find people to serve on the board. That is why board development needs to be a top priority.

In order to make the board training process simple and easy-to-follow, DSAIA has created its own online learning center to allow members to follow a more in-depth training series at a pace that works for their busy schedules. Two courses have already launched in the learning center, one of which is the highly-lauded Board Development Series.

This board development series is aimed at creating productive and engaged board members. The series guides organization top leadership through board orientations, fundraising, communicating roles and responsibilities and strategic planning.  This series breaks down into manageable sections of 15-20 minutes, a great fit for board development within the monthly board meeting. 

Register for the Board Development Course or the Donor Development Course today. All courses are offered at no charge to DSAIA members. Nonmembers can purchase courses with special offers for membership included. And watch for more DSAIA Online Learning Center courses to be added in the coming months. 

According to BoardSource, raising overall board performance from positive to very positive means investing in board education to improve effective governance. For members of DSAIA, that investment of money has already been made. The only investment left to make is time/effort.
