NYCON: Joining a Nonprofit Board
Monday, June 17, 2024, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
Category: External Webinars and Workshops

Are you interested in volunteering to serve on a nonprofit board but don't know where to start? Are you serving on a board and could use a refresher?

Have you been wondering how you can make a difference in your community? Board service is a great way to give back by giving your skills and experience to help a nonprofit that serves a cause or community you care about. It is a position with intrinsic rewards that can also provide opportunities for personal and professional development, allowing you to develop new skills, broaden your network and become a leader in your community.

Becoming a board member is also serious business and carries with it a significant level of responsibility. It is very important that current and prospective board members be aware of the responsibilities and expectations associated with serving on a nonprofit board.

In this workshop, Barbara Paxton, Director of BoardStrong, will discuss why you should consider board services and what it means to serve on the Board of Directors of a nonprofit organization. She will also give you advice about what to consider when you are selecting a board, how to find a board that matches your interests, and show you how to find the right board using our free, one-of-a-kind board matching platform.
