Join Us for a Taste of Board Chairs Academy

Third Sector Company would like to extend an invitation to our “ Taste Of Board Chairs Academy” event on Tuesday, March 28th. The event will be held in Tacoma, at the Milgard Work Opportunity Center, from 12:00 until 2:00 p.m. This workshop will cover key elements of Third Sector’s Board Chairs Academy workshop and give attendees a taste of how the program can benefit their causes.


“Simply put, [The Board Chairs Academy] training was the best I have experienced in my years as a nonprofit leader,” said Paul Knox, CEO of the United Way of Thurston County.


This program has helped over 200 nonprofits better serve their causes. Its given nonprofit boards and management better insight to developing their leadership. We’d love to add your cause to that growing list.


What will be covered in the session?


It can be difficult to maintain the vision through a leadership transition. Managing boards and motivating volunteers is no small task. That’s why our goals with Board Chairs Academy are to build more effective board leadership and to help you ensure your cause’s next generation of leaders is prepared for the task at hand. Key topics covered include:


    • A Board and Governance Self-Assessment: How can your governing body run an assessment to see what is going well and what can be improved?
    • A Fundraising Culture Self-Assessment: We’ll help you take a deeper look into your organization’s fundraising culture and share insight that has helped many organizations financially fuel their causes
    • A New Approach to Board Development: To explore how your nonprofit’s leadership can be further developed and provide resources to help you help your cause.

How is this session different than the full Board Academy Chairs Series?


This session is just a taste of the full course. While this seminar is a one day, two hour overview, our full course is done in six sessions over six months. The full course delves deeper into strategic governance rooted in advancing a cause, building sustainability, resilience, and impact with your cause, advocacy and responsibility among leaders, financial prudence, and a commitment to a sustainable future and planning for succession.
