Board Leader Certificate

The board leader pathway is designed to enhance board member participation by equipping board members with the knowledge needed to be effective in the role. It is important to invest in board development and provides board members the opportunity to see how their role strategically fits within the organization.

When board members are well-acquainted with what is expected of them as a representative member of a board and are willing to learn the various aspect of serving on a board, then the boards they serve on will have the highest chance of becoming a strong and effective board.

CNM provides board development workshops that offer members the opportunity to hone their board leader skills and reinforce how to help the organization overall succeed in their goals.
