Prepare to Make an impact
Serving on a nonprofit board is a great way to support a cause you care about in the community. In addition, it provides access to high-level networking, the ability to strengthen your project and team management skills and raise your profile in your company and your profession. The Young Professionals Auxiliary Board is a one year comprehensive board training program for young professionals interested in serving on a nonprofit board. The program will teach the skills needed to become an effective board member including the planning and execution of a YPAB event.
Attend monthly meetings that will alternate between workshops focused on nonprofit board service and planning of a Community Youth Foundation event. A second year term is available in which you would be asked to lead the workshops focused on board service. Topics covered in workshops include: board governance, strategic planning, fundraising, financial management, board/CEO relationship, as well as a sixth workshop on selecting a board to serve.
Complete the candidate application no later than December 31, 2018. As with any board there is a need for diversity of skills, experience and work background. In order to create a representative board, all application responses will be taken into consideration. Meetings will be held monthly at the Chamber office.
