JWCC logo

QUINCY — John Wood Community College Business and Industry Training have partnered with the Tracy Family Foundation and the Community Foundation to offer a nonprofit board member development course. Nonprofits often need more available board prospects when attempting to identify new board members and recruit a diverse board.

The course will be led by Clairice Hetzler and Pam Shaffer, both long-time nonprofit executives. Course sessions will be held at the John Wood Community College Workforce Development Center, 2710 N. 42nd. The course is scheduled to begin Friday, April 14, from 9-11:30 a.m. The remaining three dates will be determined at that time.

The board member development course addresses the need within our community for knowledgeable and engaged nonprofit board members. This course helps cultivate the skills and characteristics needed to become an effective leader at work and in the community. Coming to understand the connection and need for balance between knowledge and human interest in things outside of self is where the growth and development of a true leader begins.

This interactive in-person course allows emerging leaders to network with their peers and learn from each other throughout the course. Local nonprofit organizations are featured, allowing participants the opportunity to connect to a mission that speaks to them and in return, allow their specific expertise to be utilized for the greater good.

The four-part board training program is free of charge to participants. A minimum of 15 attendees is required per class. Each class session is two and a half hours in length and will include a presentation of the topic, discussion, and homework relating to each participant’s organization.
