Dr. Tad Dickel earned a Certificate in Nonprofit Board Consulting from the prestigious BoardSource in 2016. His presentation is entitled Defining Roles and Responsibilities of Board Members and Engaging Them in Development Efforts. This informative session will help participants learn how to better involve board members in the development process. Key to this is help our volunteers fully understand they now have important responsibilities.
