Board Training

A Board is an integral part of the cooperative’s business model. The AFREA provides its member associations with business management tools necessary to support good governance and sound business practices.

Board Member Training

Alberta AG Societies and the Alberta Federation of REAs are pleased to present the new Game-Based Board member training program for the busy volunteer. 

Our new Certified Volunteer Board Member Program will take you on a tour of all the rooms of an organization to explain topics like:

Each room represents one of the sections in the Governance Guidebook.  Each room has objectives to meet/complete before learner can leave. Once learner clicks on a room, image changes to show the room itself, rather than the overhead view.  There is a board member in each room. Learner must work their way through the room – answering questions, watching videos, completing activities – to earn the vote of the board member and be allowed to move to another room.  Final room is the boardroom. Learner must earn the final vote of the Board Chair to successfully complete the game.

Full Certified Board Member Program Course $200 + GST per person. The Register Online link will take you to a login page where you will sign in.
