Jennifer Mercurio, who was a member of Manhattan Community Board 4, worked on the Borough President's staff and has worked professionally with not-for-profits forwarded this not-for-profit Board member training announcement.
Yes, it's the Junior League that's running this training.
The fact that this training is being run by the Junior League ( the ladies no longer wear white gloves, I've been told) makes it a really good networking opportunity for greening and good-government types who want to network with money and extend their personal and organizational circle of influence - think of "interconnected directorships," in a nice kind of way.
If I make a few bucks in that weekend poker game, I may invest in this course...

The Junior League?s award-winning Leadership Through Governance: Training for Nonprofit Board Membership is open to the public this year, and I?m on the committee bringing it to you. This is a fantastic, fun and informative course, which will take place in our newly renovated headquarters building.
Are you interested in taking on a leadership role within your organization? Do you often wonder how the programs you volunteer for are created and implemented? Would you like to refresh yourself on the components and responsibilities of a board to help take your board to the next level? If you answered yes to any of these questions you should take advantage of the award-winning Leadership Through Governance: Training for Nonprofit Board Membership presented by the New York Junior League.
This course trains individuals interested in serving on the boards of NYC nonprofit organizations and facilitates the placement of the course participants onto these boards. Started in 1991, the Nonprofit Board Clearinghouse (NPBC) has more than a decade of experience providing qualified board members to a diverse group of nonprofit board agencies.
The 5-week course focuses on several areas of effective board participation including governance, legal responsibilities, financial management, fundraising, strategic planning and board development. Experienced individuals who are all experts in their fields teach this course. It is supplemented with a detailed training manual which includes course materials as well as relevant articles, guidelines and tips for making your board experience as great as possible.
Upon completion of the course, candidates are introduced to over 60 nonprofit agencies in New York City seeking qualified board members. The agencies represented fall into several types of organizations including the arts, social services, advocacy, health and human services and children?s organizations. Course graduates have been placed on a wide range of boards including, but not limited to, the Alzheimer?s Association, the NY Historical Association, The Books for Kids Foundation, Education Through Music and the Women?s Prison Association. The NPBC committee works closely with all the organizations to identify the most effective board members to meet their needs.
Open to the public, the course is hosted by the NYJL and is held twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. This spring the course will be held at the the Junior League of New York?s Headquarters located at 130 East 80th Street, easily accessible by Madison Avenue Buses M1, M2, M3 and M4 as well as by the #6 Subway train. The course will be held on the following nights: March 21, March 28, April 4, April 11, and April 18 from 6:00 to 9:00pm. The course cost is $275.00 for JL members and $300.00 for the public and includes course materials, dinner and board-matching services. Please register no later than Friday, March 17, 2006. For more information, please contact Carmel Napolitano at 212-288-6226, ext. 317 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
