Board training provides your chapter board members with the essential tools and knowledge to plan and carry out successful programs, educational and scholarship opportunities and networking events. NEWH, Inc. conducts a 7-hour, in-person board training with each chapter every 3 years. Chapters are encouraged to hold a board training webinar with new board members when an in-person training is not scheduled. Please contact the NEWH, Inc. office to schedule your 2-hour webinar.

MANDATORY WEBINARS FOR EACH VOTING BOARD MEMBER

In order to kick off the year on a positive note for chapters, the NEWH Executive Committee has established a Training Webinar for each director/discipline position to ensure all directors are informed of their board role. Participation in a webinar for your board position is mandatory for anyone serving on a chapter board. Webinars are held in November/December each year.

These webinars will:

  • review your board position responsibilities and accountabilities in detail
  • give you an opportunity to ask questions regarding your specific position
  • allow you to ask questions and get advice from chapter directors who are serving their 2nd term in the board position
  • establish a relationship with the NEWH, Inc. staff ‘go-to person’ for your particular position
