Nebraska Extension to Offer Board Training for Nonprofits

Rural communities are supported by numerous nonprofits organized to manage local projects and events. It’s these projects that that make Nebraska the good life. Come fall, nonprofits prepare for a new year by recruiting new members.

While willing to serve in new leadership roles, many folks come onto boards with no familiarity or knowledge of how nonprofit organizations function let alone the legal requirements. Since rules and regulations governing nonprofits change, it’s important to update seasoned board members, too.

Nebraska Extension and the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands are partnering to bring Board Masters: Nonprofit Board Training to McCook. The program will be held at the Keystone Events Center, 402 Norris Avenue on September 12.  It will run from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and a light dinner is included.

Presenters will provide the latest information all board members need to know to keep their nonprofit organizations compliant and boards operating smoothly. They will discuss:

 ·        Mission and Vision, Board Structure, and Meaningful Engagement

·        Finance and Compliance

·        Recruitment, Team Building, Improvement and Evaluation


There are multiple registration options and discounts for multiple board members to attend the training. Folks can register online and pay with a credit card at or they can call Extension Educator, Carroll Welte at 402.374.2929 or email, to obtain a registration form to use for paying by check. The registration deadline for the McCook Board Masters: Nonprofit Board Training is Noon, September 10.

For more detailed information, contact Jessica Jones at or the Johnson County Extension Office, 402.335.3669 or Carroll Welte at or the Burt County Extension Office, 402.374.2929. Participants of Nonprofits Board Boot Camps offered in last winter agreed the information provided was valuable, so don’t hesitate. Go to and register for the nonprofit board training today.
