This session is free and open to the public. Anyone in Ottawa interested in the topic is welcome to join. Click here to register.


Volunteer non-profit and charitable directors are an essential part in the ecosystem of Ottawa’s social services and volunteer sectors. Without volunteer directors many organizations, and the crucial programs and services that they deliver, would not be able to function.  


Yet directors often have doubts or questions about their role, their responsibility, the intersection of the individual responsibilities of a director and those of the board at large.  


Join this FREE info session for volunteer and/or charitable board members (directors) to ask expert Monica Chohan ANY QUESTIONS you may have about your role as a director.  Come with your (or your board’s) questions ready!
