This May, the Central Valley Community Foundation is proud to offer the nationally-acclaimed BoardSource curriculum, presented by Dr. Don Simmons of the Humanics Program at California State University, Fresno. This Board Governance series will examine strategies for creating a collaborative board culture that delivers higher levels of organizational leadership, productivity, and satisfaction within your organization. Over five sessions, participants will gain valuable skills in order to become a high-functioning board with a strategic focus on boardmember roles, responsibilities, and oversight.
