SYN - So, You Want To Be A NonProfit Director

Understanding the structure, needs and goals of an organisation can be tremendously beneficial in aligning goals and objectives. Nonprofit organisations differ from for-profit entities in their mission, target audience and problem-solving strategies. Nonprofits also face a unique set of challenges, such as fundraising and the duality of the governance and volunteer roles.

This course provides an introduction to the directorship landscape in Singapore, and the duties, liabilities and benefits of directorship in nonprofits. Speakers will share what it means to be on the board of a nonprofit organisation and what are the key considerations of joining a nonprofit board. With a good understanding of the nonprofit landscape and its duties and responsibilities, participants can make an informed decision before joining a nonprofit board.

This programme is supported by the Social Service Institute with a funding support by National Silver Academy (NSA).
