What you'll learn
Our Board Governance course has been designed to meet the learning needs of those new or aspiring to non-profit governance and for those with experience and wanting a refresher. Participants who successfully complete this course will be armed with all the knowledge and tools needed to effectively govern an affordable housing society.
This course includes approximately 32 hours of content. It is recommended that you commit to studying for 3-4 hours a week in order to be done in 8 weeks; however, you have up to 3 months (12 weeks) to complete. You can progress at your own pace, log in to do assignments, and participate in forum discussions whenever when it’s convenient for you. Having said that, we do encourage you to stick to the posted weekly schedule so that most participants will be working on the same topic at roughly the same time. A virtual orientation session will be held on September 14, from 2-3 pm PST. Although not mandatory, you are highly encouraged to attend this session where will meet your facilitator and fellow students, as well receive an overview of the course and the HousingU learning platform. The session will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
