Board Leadership – October 4 | 9:00am – 4:00pm | Alamosa
This 1-day workshop is designed for board members and nonprofit staff who are interested in increasing their skills and knowledge of nonprofit governance. Participants of this training will come away with practical tips on how to recruit and engage board members in strategic planning and fundraising to your organizations toward achieving mission and building a sustainable organization.

Peer Learning Opportunities

We believe that your peers hold a wealth of information and experiences that should be shared to help all nonprofit organizations move towards meeting their missions. This is why we have put a variety of roundtable opportunities on the calendar for 2017. We want to give nonprofit professionals a confidential space to share ideas and discuss solutions to challenges. All of our roundtable offerings are expertly facilitated by CRC staff to ensure you get the most out of every meeting.
