Manitoba Non-Profit Housing Association 

MNPHA Board Training - Level 1 

Calling all Board Members! MNPHA has designed a board training program, tailored to board members serving the non-profit housing sector.  Whether you're new to non-profit board governance, new to a housing-focused organization, or experienced in both, this custom-designed training for the non-profit housing sector in Manitoba is for you.

This training program consists of two courses - Level 1 and Level 2 - and each course is composed of 3 modules. Each module covers a foundational topic of board governance and includes tools which participants can immediately bring back to use in their organization. The course is designed for both new and experienced members of Board of Directors of housing organizations. We encourage all new members of boards of directors to join this training program, and each organization to have a minimum of two members who have completed both levels. 

Learning Outcomes
At the end of Level 1, participants will be able to:
  • Differentiate governance from management, and know the core requirements of a housing governance board
  • Organize meetings, annual meetings, and board communications to be effective and efficient
  • Understand their role and have tools to assist in hiring and overseeing an ED/Manager/Property Management Company
  • Use, create, and revise Bylaws and Policies, and understand critical Legal Requirements for the non-profit housing sector
Trainer: Rolande Kirouac, High Achievement Training
  • $95 + GST for the first participant of a MNPHA Member organization
