Today, more than ever, nonprofit organizations rely on volunteer board members for talent, time and support. If you’re serving on a board – or if you’re considering board service – do you have the information and skills you need to support your organization?
On Saturday, Feb. 15, the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon (SSMO) will host an informative workshop on developing board skills. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Conference Room 2A/B of the SSMO Convent & Administration Building, 4440 SW 148th Avenue, Beaverton.
Following an introduction to serving on a board, panelists will discuss financial oversight, legal and ethical integrity and accountability, and programs and services. Participants will also learn by exploring case studies on important issues.
Presenters will include Sr. Charlene Herinckx, Superior General of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon; Sr. Adele Marie Altenhofen, President of the SSMO Ministries Corporation; Dan Mallea, Vice President and Controller of the Regence Group and Chair of the SSMO Ministries Corporation Board; and Dr. Thom Faller, professor of philosophy at the University of Portland and a member of the Executive Committee of the National Catholic Education Association.
The workshop is offered free of charge, but a free-will offering will be gladly accepted. Lunch will be included.
To register, contact SSMO Superior General Sr. Charlene Herinckx at 503-906-1131 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for reservations is Feb. 7.
