Nonprofit Board Certificate Seminar

01:00 pm to 05:00 pm
City Hall Council Chambers

Serving on a nonprofit organization’s volunteer board of directors can be one of the great pleasures of your life or a study in frustration. If you and the organization are not well matched, or you have different expectations regarding your role, you may be bewildered at best and discouraged at worst. When you’re well matched, serving on a board can be immensely rewarding, both personally and professionally.

Who Should Attend?
Those thinking about seeking a board position and those new to their roles as board members, as well as veteran board members interested in gaining new knowledge and/or seeing new perspectives.

-Roles and responsibilities of board membership
-Board dynamics and recruitment
-Board life cycles and how to assess which board is right for you
-How to be an effective board member
-Where to find resources that will help you with board service

Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show

10:00 am to 04:00 pm
The Commons

Sixty professional artists who make something special from almost nothing will participate in the fourteenth annual Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show at The Commons in downtown Columbus, Indiana. The show has become a premier event in southern Indiana, drawing artists from across the Midwest. Admission to the event held in celebration of America Recycles Day is free.

All items in the juried show must be made wholly or in part from scrap or repurposed materials, and show attendees learn that new beauty can be found in worn leather jackets, broken dishes, mismatched silverware, old sweaters, factory waste and hundreds of other things. The range of creative work represented includes assemblages, glass, jewelry, sculpture, wearable art, weaving, woodworking and some creations which each year defy classification.
