HAMLET — Have you just been appointed as a member of a board of directors? Are you starting your own nonprofit and in the process of choose board members? Or, have you been serving on a board and would like to learn more about your personal responsibilities?

All of these and more are valid reasons to take advantage of the Board of Directors Training Seminar being offered by Richmond Community College from 9 a.m. until noon Thursday at the Cole Auditorium.

Come and join Gypsie Murdaugh who has been a business owner for more than 25 years and has worked with nonprofit and for-profit companies to organize their organizations and build/train the directors of their boards.

Murdaugh will be able to help you better understand the qualifications for directors; the individual obligations and duties that all directors should be willing to contribute and the most effective way for directors to make a difference in the life of the organization they serve.

This seminar is free. All seminars are open to the public and sponsored by the Small Business Center of Richmond Community College. Advance registration for the seminar may be completed online at; or via email or phone by contacting Small Business Center Director Deborah Hardison at or 910-410-1687.

Registration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

Murdaugh said she has no doubt that by the end of this seminar, attendees will feel empowered to give more as a director. She will ensure that each seminar attendee leaves with the resources to be effective, efficient and more passionate about every organization he or she serves, including religious, professional, civic and community-based entities.
