Not-for-Profit Board Training

It is important to invest in the board with the same efforts and energies as you would invest in paid staff, to provide and offer training to the Board as recommended by the Charities Regulatory Authority Principal 5 .

Boardmatch offers three types for training for Not-For-Profits:

Our Trustee Training, our CEO & Chair and Chair Training, and our In-House Bespoke Board Training.

Testimonials from Not-For-Profits who have availed of our trainings.

David White, Chairperson, Amnesty International

“Our board found the Boardmatch training extremely value added. Rather than the training be positioned as simply working through foils and governance theory, each topic was approached in a manner which provoked analysis and self-evaluation. We walked away from the training with a number of practical action items to improve our governance.”

Bernard O'Regan, CEO, Western Care

“Western Care Association engaged training for its Board of Directors from Boardmatch.  The Association found that organising the training was very efficient and that it was possible to organise the training on a date and at a time that worked well for the directors, all of whom are voluntary directors with other personal commitments to work around.

The training was excellent, detailing the roles and responsibilities of directors.  The trainer was informed by his own experience, adding value to the content. Western Care will continue to engage with Boardmatch for future training and has no hesitation in recommending them to any organisation.”

Tommy Fegan, Chairperson , CRY Ireland

“The role of the Chairperson in a not-for-profit is a critical one, and this session facilitated chairs from major and smaller NGO to take time out to consider the gravitas of their roles, and how to aspire to best practice. Our facilitator was an experienced practitioner and trainer who ensure we optimized the valuable time we had. Well done to Boardmatch for the timely initiative.”

Gerry Hickey, Deputy CEO, Tipperary County Childcare Committee

“This event was well organised with an excellent presenter relaying relevant information supported by good examples from her experience. I would recommend this training for aspiring board members.”

Mary Lynch, Board Director, University of Limerick Student's Union

“Dorothy was highly experienced and knowledgeable. She made the training practical and easy to apply.”

John O'Callaghan, MIATI, LIB

“This training day has given me the knowledge required for my duties as a recently appointed Chair and also the confidence in performing this role to the best of my abilities”.
