OnBoard prepares participants for service on nonprofit organizations’ boards of directors. Through this program individuals learn about the nonprofit sector and key topics and trends within it from CNM’s experts.


CNM Workshop

Join the Board Fundamentals Certificate where the OnBoard curriculum will be covered. This is open to any individual interested in being on a nonprofit board. Participants will walk away from the sessions understanding the responsibilities of board members, the financial practices of nonprofits, boards’ roles in the community, fundraising requirements, and learnings from inside nonprofit boards. Participants who complete the certificate will get the opportunity to be connected with a nonprofit looking for board members.


Customized Training

For corporate, civic, or membership groups of 12 or more, multi-day OnBoard sessions may be scheduled at their place of meeting or business. Single day sessions are also available for board refresher sessions.
