The Alberta Board Member Essentials Program (ABME) was built by Albertans for Albertans, and is designed to support the growth of new and developing board members.

ABME is a multi-part training program that combines online learning with in-person workshops to give new and developing board members the tools to successfully serve on a non-profit board. 

Check out our program guide!

WHAT TO EXPECT

For new board members, ABME helps build the foundational layer of learning in order to be an effective board member.

For developing board members, ABME supports your growth in understanding nonprofits – not just from the lens of your organization, but also how you and your organization play a role in the larger social sector ecosystem.

The full program is five weeks and consists of three online courses and two half-day in-person sessions. Online sessions take on average 3 hours each and are to be completed on the student's own time.

Registration for the program will remain until July 23, 2019, or until filled. Students will be responsible for completing Parts 1 and 2 prior to the in-person training on August 13, 2019. 

Please note: Space is limited. Register early.
