GCN’s team of experts invite those serving on or working with nonprofit boards to join us for this lively crash course on the fundamentals of nonprofit board service. Our discussion will cover basic legal and fiduciary responsibilities, key annual obligations, expectations around fundraising, roles and responsibilities, and the latest trends and challenges facing nonprofit boards.

  • Legal responsibilities, including duty of care, duty of loyalty, and duty of obedience 
  • Fiduciary role and the basics of nonprofit finance 
  • Board fundraising and contribution expectations 
  • Trends in boards 


Board members and the staff who work most closely with them. These sessions are free for GCN member organizations.
