Board Basics Training with MAP for Nonprofits

MAP for Nonprofits is generously partnering with Board Repair to host a Board Basics Training, targeted toward those new to serving on nonprofit boards and those who want a refresher. See below for more details and to register for the free event!

Organized by and for people of color, Board Repair's mission is to create a more effective non-profit sector by increasing participation of people of color on boards. Informally structured and based on a group mentorship model, Board Repair is volunteer-managed and not affiliated with any organizations. We simply ask that participants self-identify as people of color, that they be willing to share and to listen, that they maintain confidentiality, and that they be up for a bit of laughter and fun too. 

If you'd like to learn more about the basics of serving on a non-profit board (or want a refresher!), please join us for this training.

Board Basics Training

Carty Heights community room
412 Dunlap St N, Saint Paul
Carty Heights is a block away from the Green Line Lexington Station, and there is also ample street parking.
Meal provided through support from The McKnight Foundation.

MAP for Non-Profits is providing this to us for free (usually $45/person), so I hope lots of us can take advantage of this opportunity to get the big picture basics. Please register once you know you can come so that we can figure out how much more outreach to do.

Registration required:

Feel free to forward this invitation to other people of color. Thanks!
