Board Boot Camp On Wheels

Bring board training to your board and key staff members. An experienced MAP trainer will present Board Boot Camp (basic training) or the more interactive Tips to Transform Your Board to your group. Expect one preparatory discussion with your trainer, followed by a two-and-a-half hour training session that will enlighten your board on roles and responsibilities, get your board members on the same page, and provide a great occasion for members to come together and interact in a relaxed learning mode. For Twin Cities locations, the fee can be as low as $800, depending upon the number of participants, and other factors. Participants receive our comprehensive Board Boot Camp manual, and related materials.
