Jackson EMC Foundation Hosting Board Leadership Training

The Jackson EMC Foundation is hosting a board leadership training series in partnership with the Athens Area Community Foundation. It consists of four tailored workshops designed to train nonprofit leaders and board members. 

Trainings are focused on bringing the best into the boardroom. Led by Victoria Prevatt, founder of Good Works, workshop participants benefit from Prevatt’s more than 20 years of experience working with nonprofit organizations – from small grassroots startups to legacy institutions with global impact. She works with leaders to elevate and enhance the experience and impact of nonprofit leaders, board members and investors.

Attendees will learn best practices in board governance and hear from peers serving our community as board members.

Each workshop will be held twice from February through May: Once in Gwinnett on the Jackson EMC campus, located at 825 Buford Drive, and once in downtown Athens at Synovus Bank.

Registration is $15 per attendee and includes breakfast. All registration fees will be returned to the community through donations to nonprofits in our community.

Each workshop is limited to 25 attendees.
