Serving on a board is a rewarding experience to help power nonprofit success and strengthen communities. With a desire to help make the world a better place, we connected skilled young professionals to 17 organizations in the Manhattan community in Board Membership 101. In this virtual, breakout room style event, attendees learned about board positions within the community, what it takes to serve on a board, and received 1:1 interaction with key stakeholders. Cultivating these relationships is crucial for board involvement in upcoming years to help create a prosperous Manhattan.
“Because a human resources board is a little bit niche, we weren’t really sure what to expect, so we are thrilled to welcome two new members who are both interested in joining our board! This event gave us the opportunity to connect with members of the community that we might not have been able to reach otherwise.” – Chelsie Sanders, Vice President – Human Resource Management Network
