The Douglas W. Eberle Not-For-Profit Board Governance Series was established in 2008 to strengthen and sustain Not-For-Profit Boards in Tippecanoe and the surrounding counties. NCHS is partnering with The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette and United Way of Greater Lafayette to present the education series. The purpose of this program is to build knowledge about responsible oversight and governance, and effective responses to policy and management issues faced by today’s Not-For-Profit volunteer leaders. The continuing education series is designed for, and limited to, Board volunteers and Executive Director teams.

Sessions are held on the first Wednesday of each month at the Lafayette Country Club. A continuing education series designed to improve the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by strengthening boards of directors has been developed by The Community Foundation and is being jointly sponsored by NCHS, United Way of Greater Lafayette, and The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette. This series is especially designed for the volunteer leaders on the Boards of Not-For-Profit Corporations.
