HAMLET – Learn the steps for establishing a board of directors for your nonprofit organization in the state of North Carolina by signing up for a free seminar offered through the Small Business Center at Richmond Community College.

“Igniting Your Board of Directors” will be offered Thursday, October 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Honeycutt Center in Laurinburg. 

Presenter Sandra Dales will teach participants all aspects of creating a board of directors for a nonprofit, how active the board should be, and how to get the board of directors interested.

“Although nonprofit boards of directors are different in size, scope and implementation, every board should have the same basic tenets as a foundation,” Dales said. “This seminar will cover those basic tenets that every working board should have in its arsenal and will offer tips on how to keep your board engaged.” 


Dales, a 20-plus year veteran of nonprofit management, will show participants that beginning a nonprofit organization and selecting a board of directors may not be as daunting as they may think.

RichmondCC’s Small Business Center supports the development of new businesses and the growth of existing businesses by being a community-based provider of counseling, training, and resource information. 

This seminar is part of the “Nonprofit Thursdays” Certificate Series offered through the Small Business Center. Each session of the series will be held on the second Thursday of each month. Complete five sessions in a calendar year (January 1- December 31) and receive a Nonprofit Training Certificate of completion.
