STAMFORD, Conn. – The United Way of Western Connecticut will host its BoardServe Western CT board candidate training Friday, June 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Northern Trust in Stamford.
The training is designed to boost the capacity of local nonprofit agencies by providing training for potential board members and for nonprofits in need of additional board members.
At the completion of the session, board candidates will have the opportunity to hear from a cross section of social service nonprofit organizations about the work they are doing and the needs that they have on their boards.
“Board service is a wonderful way to engage in our community and to strengthen organizations that are doing such important work in our own neighborhoods,” said Kim Morgan, CEO of United Way of Western Connecticut.
Training board member candidates in nonprofit governance and actively preparing nonprofits to recruit, engage and utilize new board members are integral components of the BoardServe Western CT program. BoardServe Western CT is made possible in part through support from Fairfield County’s Community Foundation.
