BLUEPRINT FOR BOARD SERVICE

The United Way of Tarrant County’s Blueprint for Board Service program is an impactful opportunity to learn from and network with fellow professionals who are passionate about addressing our community’s most critical issues. Participants learn how to drive change in our community while serving on a nonprofit board, council or committee. Participation is limited to 30 people, and the session topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Governance
  • Nonprofit Finance and Accounting
  • Evaluations and Outcomes
  • Outreach and Advocacy

The evening sessions culminate in a speed networking exercise with current board members of United Way and our partner agencies, not only to provide a time for additional learning, but also to match participants with available opportunities to serve.

2017 INFORMATION & DATES BELOW

“The best part of the Blueprint for Board Service to me was the last night of “speed dating”. It was easy to find a position, and really ended up being difficult to choose from the many great opportunities offered. I got a lot out of the class and appreciate the support. I wouldn’t have known how to get started if not for this course.”

– Patra Stroemer, class of 2015

“Blueprint gave me more of an appreciation for what it really takes to manage and be a part of the board side of things.  The classes give you a feel for all the various aspects that it takes for boards to accomplish a goal. Financial, campaigns, volunteers, accountability of exec director, etc.  It is not just, ‘we believe in the cause’ but more focus on how to make things happens so the non profit can be effective and make a difference. “

 – Wiley Phillips, class of 2014

“Blueprint for Board Service provides the foundational elements necessary to excel as a board member and be of value to the nonprofit organization you are serving”
