Non-profits are the heart of a community and recently corporate social responsibility has become a hot topic. As chambers look for ways to provide relevance not only to their members, but to their communities, assisting non-profits in training their boards to be more effective is a sound “business” practice. This is “business” education that you may not have thought of as a part of your chamber program of work, but that could make you a hero! How does it work?
