The Shriver Center's Board Development training provides a comprehensive framework for understanding the full range of governing body roles, responsibilities, and best practices, specifically in the context of a civil legal aid practice, as well as funding requirements and standards to which legal aid providers are accountable.

Participants examine the respective roles and responsibilities of the organization's board members and staff including potential areas of confusion and areas that require a strong board/staff partnership. Participants leave with tools and techniques for developing a strong, active board that is fully engaged in appropriate board activities and decision making.
