Connecting Nonprofits and Prospective Board Members
Wednesday, November 15, 2023, 6PM
DePaul University Lincoln Park Student Center (LPSC)
We’re back in 2023 with our third professional matchmaking event!
Are you representing a nonprofit looking for board members from new sources? Or are you looking to join a nonprofit board and don’t know where to start? You’ve found the place to take the first step.
Nonprofit Board Match connects exciting potential board members with nonprofit organizations looking to energize and diversify their governance.
Why Board Diversity Matters
For nonprofits to stay relevant with impactful missions, they must be led by a board of directors that is connected to the community, focused on strategy, and as diverse as the communities they serve. However, only 22% of nonprofit board members identify as people of color. The Chicago Nonprofit Board Match event is designed to support nonprofits in their goals of creating equitable programs and services throughout their organization by matching them with talented leaders from diverse backgrounds and interests. Individuals who identify as Black, LatinX, Women, and LGBTQ+ are encouraged to apply and to attend Chicago Nonprofit Board Match.
The Nonprofit Board Match event connects organizations with open board positions, including on committees and other opportunities to grow into board seats, with qualified professionals eager to help the mission.
2 people for $75 or 1 person for $50
The Nonprofit Board Match event is an opportunity for professionals from every sector and at every skill level, to gain leadership skills while working in service with social good organizations to help them fulfill their mission.
$15 per person
FREE Post-Event Training for Nonprofits
After the event, we’ll hold an interactive session for nonprofits. This session will cover strategies to optimize your relationship with your new board members, courtesy of Jeromé Holston, nonprofit board consultant.
