Ready to LEAD:
Nonprofit Board Leadership Training

Ready to LEAD is a 14-hour free seminar presented over two days to prepare Latinos for effective board member service with nonprofit organizations. The seminar is designed for individuals with little or no prior board member experience. Those interested in applying for Ready to LEAD training should complete the Contact Profile below.

Participants acquire knowledge of the nonprofit sector history and its impact on U.S. society, including nonprofit governance principles, and the role of the nonprofit sector in Latino community affairs. Experienced guest speakers share their perspectives on successfully navigating a thorough board member selection process, and how to leverage internal and external mentor relations. Independent continued learning is encouraged by providing manuals with a guide to regional advanced leadership development programs and education, links to online sources for further independent study and relevant research.

Seminar topics include: Basic Nonprofit Management, Board Member Roles and Responsibilities, Public Speaking and Media Relations, Boardroom Culture & Protocol, Nonprofit Finance & Accounting, Fundraising, and Leadership Development.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health situation, Latinos LEAD is postponing our group events, including our Ready to LEAD seminars. Please complete a contact profile and we will alert you to the new schedule as it becomes available.
