Newberry On Board
for Non-Profit Board Education
(churches, organizations, commissions, etc.)

The Chamber of Commerce, Newberry County, City of Newberry, the Newberry Opera House, and Newberry College have partnered to present a continuing education opportunity for both current members of non-profit boards and for those interested in future board positions. Although each non-profit is charged with advancing the mission of its individual organization, there are fundamental roles and responsibilities inherent to all non-profit boards. Aligned with those responsibilities is a framework of legalities, compliance, and accountability issues that not knowing can impede board service and jeopardize organizational growth. Education is the key to the most positive and productive non-profit board service, and it is also the best protection from avoidable unfavorable board related and organizational situations.
Through a series of four Sunday afternoon sessions, this cooperative effort will provide information and resources for good governance and is open to both currently serving non-profit board members and to those persons interested in learning more about serving in such a capacity. The total fee for all four sessions is $25 per participant. Non-profit boards sending five or more participants will pay $20 for each participant.
Each session will be held in the auditorium of the Alumni Music Center (AMC) at Newberry College, located on Luther Street.
Session I: Building a Good Board
(Sunday, January 13, 2019 from 3:00-5:00pm)
Session II: Best Practices and Compliance
(Sunday, January 27, 2019 from 3:00-5:00pm)
Session III: Fiduciary Responsibility and Accountability
(Sunday, February 3, 2019 from 3:00-5:00pm)
Session IV: Legalities and risk Management
(Sunday, February 17, 2019 from 3:00-5:00pm)
