University Mo Extension

University of Missouri Extension faculty in the Business and Communities Program will offer a 10-session non-profit board training for new and future board members. Build Your Board will be taught via Zoom Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 1 o’clock April 22nd through May 25th.

County Engagement Specialist in Agriculture and Environment Jackie Spainhower says the instructors have experience managing and serving on non-profit boards. They will teach the basics of being “an effective and responsible representative” for any non-profit organization.



Spainhower notes the general course is not customized for any specific organization; however, it can be tailored to fit the needs of individual organizations and taught face to face if desired.

The cost for the online training is $80. Register for Build Your Board April 22nd through May 25th by going to and searching for Board Training Online.
