EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension is now accepting registrations for its new Nonprofit Board Development workshops. The workshops are co-sponsored by BoardStar, a Wisconsin resource dedicated to an effective community of board leaders. All programs will be held at the UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education office at 210 Water St.

  • "Orientation Express" will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 19. The workshop is a starting point or refresher course for anyone who serves on a nonprofit board. Topics include fundamental roles and responsibilities of board service, with an emphasis on fulfilling the board's governance functions.

  • "Executive Exchange" will be held from 10 a.m.-noon April 20. It is intended for executive directors only and is a unique opportunity to speak frankly in a confidential environment with a skilled facilitator, ask questions of peers and receive feedback on challenges.

  • "Leadership in Tandem" will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 20. The focus of this workshop is the unique partnership between the executive director and board president working in tandem to fulfill joint and separate responsibilities, the difference between management and governance and effective communication.

The fee for each workshop is $39 and includes refreshments and workshop materials.
