Registration for nonprofit board training deadline set Program helps people build civic networks The registration for Delaware's premier board training program, Leadership Delaware, ends Wednesday, Dec. 13. A limited number of spaces are still avail- able. Leadership Delaware is the only course in Delaware that pro- vides in-depth training to individ- uals who serve or desire to serve on nonprofit boards. Sponsored by JPMorgan Chase and the State Office of Volunteerism-Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, Leadership Delaware offers six daylong sessions that incorporate skill-building activi- ties in board governance and leadership. The program also includes a board internship that helps participants put theory into practice by working with Delaware Association of Nonprofit Agencies (DANA) member agency boards. Many corporations use the pro- gram to acquaint their executives with the workings of a board of directors and with the unique opportunities afforded by work- ing with nonprofit boards. "For businesses that want to build the capacity of their employees to lead, this is an ideal program," said DANA President Connie Hughes. "Leadership Delaware also fosters partici- pants' involvement in civic and social issues, while affirming the 'commitment of their sponsoring employers and organizations to our community." Issuesand topics covered in the training range from building strategic alliances and raising resources to board-staff relations and the legal responsibilities of board members. Education, the environment, arts and human services comprise the civic issues highlighted in this leadership experience. Upon completion of the course, all interested Leadership Delaware participants are offered placement on the board or a com- mittee of a local nonprofit agency. Former graduates currently serve on the boards of The Ronald McDonald House, Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware, Westside Health, The Food Bank of Delaware, YWCA Delaware and United Way of Delaware.
