Douglas W. Eberle Not-for-Profit Board Governance Series
Who should come to this series? Anyone in nonprofit, but particularly board members and potential board members.
What's new this year? Instead of paper surveys, we will be using a Survey Monkey link which will be sent to your inbox shortly after each month’s presentation. The survey will only take 2-3 minutes to complete and we’ll be saving trees! In order for this to be successful, it’s important that you, as the primary contact, provide us with each attendee’s email address prior to the session they attend. Thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter!
How do I get the most out of this series? 1) come to every session yourself because you will find that the learning builds on what came before and prepares you for what is to come; and 2) registering for all 9 sessions at once is the most cost-effective option (saving you $70)
What is the cost? Register for all 9 sessions for $200.00, a discount of $70.00, or register for sessions individually at a cost of $30 per session. Major credit cards and Paypal are accepted through our secure online registration system (scroll to the registration buttons). You add any session(s) you want to your “cart,” then complete a registration form and “checkout.”
If you choose the Series Option, we ask for your assistance in being good stewards by appointing one contact person in your organization who will confirm attendance of someone at least 5 days in advance of the session. This helps us to ensure that we do not over- or under-estimate food or materials, and it helps our presenters better prepare to deliver their best to you.
Where do the sessions take place? All sessions take place at the Lafayette Country Club
What are the dates and times? All sessions begin promptly at 11:00 a.m.. We recommend you arrive at least 10 minutes early to check in, get coffee, and get a good seat. We break for lunch at approximately noon, and resume at 12:30 p.m. (although some lunch periods may be working sessions). Sessions conclude at 2:00 p.m.

How do I use this online registration system? This system functions just like an online shopping cart for your favorite store: make your selection(s) and load your cart. To "check out," you'll go to your cart (there will be a yellow square that says "cart" in the upper right hand corner of your screen) and follow the prompts to pay. When you've completed the transaction, you'll get a confirmation email Note that if you select the "Series Package Option" (meaning purchasing all the sessions in a series at one time), you will fill out your registration form as part of your check-out process. If you want to purchase one or some of the sessions, you will complete and submit your registration form in order to get the link to load your shopping cart. If you run into problems or just want someone to help walk you through the steps, give us a call at 317-441-5295!
