Six select members of the Carroll Chamber of Commerce participated in "Board Dynamics - How a Board Member Really Adds Value to an Organization" in the Harold Bierl Community Room at the Chamber today. These individuals serve on boards of non-profit organizations. The reason the Chamber conducts thistraining is two-fold: It provides added membership benefits to the non-profit organizations that belong to the Chamber; and, it strengthens the member organizations by setting expectations for volunteer board members.
Two Chamber members, New Hope Village and New Opportunities not only have participants in the two-hour workshop, but Frank Hermsen (New Hope) and Chad Jensen (New Opportunities) assisted with content and delivery.
"Chamber workshops like Board Dynamics help train board members of non-profit organizations. This is beneficial to volunteers new to a non-profit boards, and to organizations that need expert guidance on organizational leadership," said Frank Hermsen, executive director of New Hope Village.
The Chamber 's Leadership Development programs include Carroll County Leadership Institute, Connect Young Professionals, workshops and much more.
