Board Fundamentals: Roles and Responsibilities (eLearning)

Workshop Description

Vantage Point’s most popular training session, Board Fundamentals: Roles and Responsibilities, is now available as an accessible self-paced eLearning course, an invaluable introduction to what a board of directors is, what their key responsibilities are, and key resources to get you or your board started. 

The asynchronous eLearning course is available for purchase for $50 per person, providing 60 days access. The eLearning course covers much of the same content as our live workshop and custom training on board roles and responsibilities, in a self-paced, virtual format. If you would like to explore ways to support your whole board’s access to the eLearning course through group pricing/purchase, or would like to discuss whether a custom, live training session would be recommended based on your board’s learning objectives, please contact Olivia Gordon, Client & Program Delivery Coordinator, at ogordon@thevantagepoint.ca.  

As a self-paced eLearning course, we encourage participants to allow approximately 1-3 hours to complete the course, reviewing videos, transcripts, text, additional resources, and reflection questions. We encourage notetaking throughout if helpful for your learning style, as well discussion with other board members about your questions and learnings.
