10 questions to ask before you say yes

Serving on any Board of Directors is an honor that can be both challenging and rewarding. This service has both legal and fiduciary responsibilities as well as potential liabilities and a commitment of your time, skills and resources. Choosing the wrong Board to serve on can be frustrating, time consuming and difficult to remedy.
While being asked to serve is flattering, stop to ask questions about programs, finances, constituents, structure, responsibilities, staff and more. What are the 10 questions you need to have answered before you say “Yes!” to joining any Board? Find out 9 to 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11, at 6719 E. 2nd St. (Stepping Stones Administrative Offices), Prescott Valley.
Join us for a fast-paced 90 minute workshop where we will go through the questions you should ask and even more importantly how to understand and weigh the responses to make an informed positive choice-the first time. If you are already serving, this workshop will be a good reminder of information should have at your fingertips.
This workshop is offered free of charge by West Yavapai Guidance Clinic Foundation, and you don’t need to be considering Board service with us. It’s for anyone! RSVP to Cindy Brown, at 445-5211 x3634, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leading this “10 Questions” workshop is Arlene Alen, CPM, IOM. Alen is President/CEO of the Chino Valley Area Chamber of Commerce & Arizona Office of Tourism Visitors Center.
