What I Need To Know To Join A Nonprofit Board?

Over the past year, many have been feeling the need to make an impact, and want to give back to their communities. Serving on a nonprofit board is a great way to help. The appeal of giving your time, talent and treasure to a nonprofit that serves a cause or community you care about has its own intrinsic rewards. It can also provide opportunities for your personal and professional development. Additionally, our Baruch alumni represent a category of board member that organizations need to diversity their boards - by experience, expertise, and perspectives, age, and community voice - and they are looking to do so.

Join Barbara Paxton, Chief Program Officer of BoardStrong (formerly Governance Matters), for a walk through the steps of what it means to serve on the Board of Directors of a nonprofit organization and what you should know before you join one. She will also give you advice about what to consider when you are selecting a board, and how to find a board that needs you. She will also demonstrate BoardStrong's free new matching platform, a great tool for finding the perfect board fit.
