Are you curious about serving on a nonprofit board? Are you on a board that is in search of new members? This event is for you! Many graduate students and young professionals are encouraged to join nonprofit boards. You have what it takes to be an effective board member, and may even bring new and unique perspectives to the table. What often remains nebulous is how one finds a board to serve on. While boards with open seats may be wondering how do we bring in new members who will meet our needs? How to we promote openings and receive a list of committed and qualified candidates?
Expect some entertaining conversation and a dash of organized serendipity that may be just the thing to help you find a new board member or a board to serve on. Featuring conversation with:
