National consultant to speak locally

Saturday, February 7, 2009

National non-profit consultant Vernetta Walker of BoardSource will come to Greencastle on Feb. 16 to present a workshop titled "The Twelve Principles of Effective Governance."

This workshop is a part of the Putnam County Community Foundation's Non-Profit Learning Series, which is geared toward community members who staff or volunteer with non-profit organizations and wish to build capacity in areas of fundraising, governance, marketing and more.

Based on the BoardSource publication, The Source, this workshop goes beyond the basic roles and responsibilities of board members. The workshop will focus on what a board of directors needs to do to become exceptional and gives specific examples of how to make this possible.

The event will be held at Area 30 Career Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with lunch catered by Almost Home. The cost to attend is $10 per person and includes lunch and training materials.

This normally more expensive workshop is being offered at a reduced price due in large part to corporate sponsor Wabash Capital.
