Corporate Business on Board seminars are a collaboration between the A&BC and companies seeking to create professional development and corporate citizenship opportunities for their employees. These one-day or half-day workshops prepare business professionals for the rewarding experience of volunteerism, nonprofit leadership, and board participation and build upon the core leadership skills of participants. Seminar content is suited for those who are considering board service or who may already serve on boards.
Topics covered include:
- Board types and structures
- Effective board governance
- Group dynamics and decision making
- Legal and fiduciary responsibilities
- Fundraising, marketing, and strategic planning
- Finding the organization for you
The A&BC also offers several open enrollment seminars for the general public throughout the year, which are well suited for both business professionals as well as nonprofit administrators seeking to learn more about board management or who are seeking to onboard new or prospective board members.
Through Business on Board, we have prepared more than 1500 business executives for board service and have connected hundreds of these executives to the nonprofit boards on which they now serve.
Participating Boston-area companies and institutions include State Street Corporation, Bank of America, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Association of Corporate Counsel, Boston College Carroll School of Management, Citizens Bank, Fidelity Investments, The Boston Globe, Investors Bank and Trust Company, Tufts Health Plan, Staples, Goodwin Procter, Mintz Levin, and many others.
