Event description
Board Panel Perspectives is a unique opportunity to hear directly from current board, committee and association members.

About this event

This session will explore:

  • Who joins a non-profit board or association
  • What it’s like to be responsible for a non-profit or association
  • How you can find a leadership position that fits your goals

Board Panel Perspectives brings together a group of active board, committee and association members. Through a Q&A format, panelists will discuss their path to this leadership role, and the current realities of supporting large and small groups and non-profits across Toronto. Participants of this session will gain diverse and meaningful insights to help inform their own community engagement goals, along with the opportunity to ask questions and get advice.

Note: Participation in "Becoming a Board Member" is recommended prior to attending this session. While it's not required, it can be helpful to provide deeper insight and context into board governance. You can join the self-directed online learning Becoming a Board Member course on LearnVT.ca anytime ($35).
