Serve on a Board

WHY SERVE ON A NONPROFIT BOARD?

  • Impact your community, and quite possibly, a lot of individual lives.
  • Be part of a team working to solve a societal issue.
  • Lend your professional expertise to a worthy cause.

WHY NONPROFITS NEED YOU

  • As many as 3 million board seats go unfilled each year in the U.S.
  • Finding quality and motivated board members ranks only behind fundraising as the biggest problem faced by many nonprofits.
  • They need fresh perspectives, new ideas and a variety of skills to execute their mission.

Board Member Connect was a real lifesaver for our organization. We were in desperate need of an infusion of new energy on our Board and we lacked the time or talent to look outside our immediate circles. We are quite pleased with Board Member Connect and it was well worth the investment.
