The Explorers Club Is a Natural Pathway to the Non-Profit World

Robert will describe how participation in any not-for-profit can enrich your life. Importantly, Members will learn what to consider before accepting a board position with a not-for-profit. Criteria to consider when evaluating the impact and effectiveness of a not-for-profit will also be discussed.

Since its inception, Community Partners has done over 100 consulting projects for nonprofits, including two projects for The Explorers Club.

Exploration Seminars Program:

As in the past, the Club’s more experienced and accomplished Members will address practical field needs and disciplines directly relevant to exploration. The common goal of the series is to contribute and expand field knowledge in a ‘show me how to’ format, with several sessions providing a ‘hands on’ approach.

Please note the Exploration Seminars are for Members only, without charge, but reservations are required due to limited seating in the Board Room. Members wishing to attend should email the Club Receptionist at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), to secure space.
