One of the ways we serve our affiliates is by developing and providing them with tools, such as our online Board Member Orientation that educates new board members about Love INC and overall board member responsibilities. Going deeper into training, we provide an in-depth Board Tool Kit with important information on ins-and-outs of a well-functioning board. What does this do? It provides a consistent onboarding process across the Love INC movement, and saves our affiliates time in having to create their own material.
