LA Chapter Social Enterprise Alliance Meeting
"Let's be Frank- Creating a Strong Board of Directors"
This month features a discussion on what it means to be on a board of directors - whether it's a non-profit, for profit, social enterprise or if you're not yet on a board but curious about what it really means to be on a board of directors.
By coming together and sharing best practices as well as pitfalls to avoid, we hope to make the SE community stronger by better board leadership. Please join us for what should be an eye-opening event.
When: Monday, July 29th 6:00pm to 8:00pm
