Serving on a charitable board is an opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause or mission, gain experience, broaden your career horizons, and use your skills to serve your community in an area of your interest. The Public Interest Leaders of the Boston Bar Association are proud to present this engaging program that will explain everything from how to land a position on a board to the skills you will need in order to be effective.

This program will be particularly valuable to lawyers who have little or no significant experience serving on charitable Boards but would like to. Lawyers and non-lawyers who are already serving on Boards and want to be more knowledgeable and effective will also find this program informative.

Specific Topics:

  • How to find Board membership opportunities and selling yourself to a Board
  • Topics and skills that Board members should be aware of (corporate governance, basic financial skills, 501(c)(3) status and fundraising)  
  • Working with your Board and its organization  (expectations of Board members, fundraising, current issues facing Boards and directors)
