Fall is almost here! Will learning be on your list of things to do this season? BCNPHA can help with that.
We’ll be offering the following education courses in September 2017:
Board Governance: Do you have new board members? Are you concerned about how the new Societies Act affects your organization? Our Board Governance online course includes up-to-date information that all non-profit board members are required to know and includes sections on relationship building, communications and the new Societies Act. The next course begins September 25. See more details here.
Capital Planning 101: Capital Planning 101 is a 16-hour online course that focuses on the process of creating and updating a Capital plan using BCNPHA’s Capital Planning Template, using Ameresco’s Asset Planner™ software. There is no fee for non-profit housing providers who take this course as it is fully funded by BC Housing. The next course starts September 11. Learn more here.
Ready, Set, Build: Are you are considering building affordable housing in your community? Then Ready, Set, Build! (RSB!) is for you. RSB! is a blended course, consisting of an online component and in-person session, that will walk you through the development process.
