Serving on Nonprofit Boards: From the Inside Out

Recorded: December 7, 2022

Have you ever considered serving on a nonprofit board? Maybe you are not sure why you should join a board when you can volunteer your time in other ways. There are a number of things to consider before making the commitment to serve on a nonprofit board, so join our panel of philanthropy leaders for an engaging discussion as they share their knowledge and insight on the benefits and potential conflicts of board service!

Topics of discussion will include:

1. What makes for an effective board member?

2. What advice would you have for someone who is looking for their first nonprofit board role? What experiences should they have had?

3. Understand your role and the work involved. Will this fit into your lifestyle?

4. How do you suggest board members best work with the paid staff of a nonprofit?
