The Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation will host a four-part “Board Service 101” series beginning Wednesday. The workshops are designed to serve nonprofit board members — those both new to board service and those who are more seasoned — as well as anyone who might have an interest in serving on a board in the future. Sessions will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. every other Wednesday at the Family Center, 1800 N. Blanchard St. Dates and topics include: Sept. 20: Aly Sterling Philanthropy staff will present the basics of being a member, including roles, responsibilities and best practices. Oct. 4: Patrick Sadowski and Greg Hull will cover legal concerns for board members, such as liability, questions to ask and coverage. Oct. 18: Community Foundation staff will speak on fundraising, including strategies, best practices/trends and resources. Nov. 1: Aly Sterling Philanthropy will discuss the decision to be a board member, signs of a healthy organization and board, as well as an exploration of personal values and skills. The series culminates in a nonprofit “speed dating” event Nov. 15, where nonprofits in search of new board and committee members can network with potential leaders. Those who attend three or more of the sessions will receive a special designation on nametags at the event, making nonprofits aware of their completion of the sessions.
