Solid, impactful board governance is achievable, but it takes work! CNE believes in the power of a strong board and is committed to helping nonprofits get there. We work with both nonprofit board members and business leaders looking to engage employees in board service. Contact our team to learn more about how we can help through our personalized board trainings. Together we can become more effective boards and have the most impact on our community.

“A great board knows its role. It’s fully engaged in the right ways. It brings contacts and connections that grow the organization’s resources. It feels a sense of common purpose.”Joan Garry
