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

Alberta Board Member Essentials is a multi-part training program that combines online learning with live workshops to give new and developing board members the tools to successfully serve on a non-profit board.

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 non-profits – not just from the lens of your organization but how you and your organization play a role in the larger social sector ecosystem.

The full program consists of three on-demand courses and five live virtual sessions. On-demand sessions take, on average, three hours each and are to be completed on the participant’s own time leading up to the live sessions. Access to the on-demand sessions will be available immediately upon registration.

The registration deadline is October 27, 2022.

Live Virtual session takes place:

  • October 28, 2022 - 9:00 - 10:00 am (Welcome and Introduction to the Program, What to Expect, and How to Get the Most From your Learning)
In-person sessions take place:
  • November 18, 2022 - 9:00 - 12:30 am (Working as a Sum of the Parts)
