Interested in Serving on a Nonprofit Board?
Are you passionate about serving your community and interested in participating in a significant way? Then Get on Board is for you! Get on Board is a one-stop-shop for interested, passionate individuals looking to increase their civic involvement at a leadership level. Join more than 500 other experienced and aspiring community leaders on Monday, October 1 from 4:00-6:30pm at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis as you interact with one hundred nonprofit organizations with board and committee vacancies in a single evening.
Again this year, I will be joined by Sandra Emmanuel, a long-time local nonprofit leader and consultant, to present 20-30 minute overviews of what it means to be a board member and help you think about the type of organization that could be a great match for your skills and interest.
Get on Board is hosted by Lacy Leadership Association and since its inception ten years ago, has connected more than 2,000 new board members, committee members, and leadership volunteers into the local non-profit community. Charitable Advisors has been involved with GOB since the beginning and is pleased to be a sponsor again this year. Check out the list of exhibiting organizations, see what past year's attendees have to say, pre-register at: http://www.lacyleadership.org/GetOnBoard.html. Help spread the word within your company or professional circle. Nonprofit board service is acknowledged as a great way to build leadership skills as well as use them.
