EXCEPTIONAL NONPROFITS NEED EXCEPTIONAL BOARDS
Presented in partnership with The New Philanthropists, Board Summit is a fast-paced, networking event designed to connect individuals interested in nonprofit board service with a variety of Central Texas-based organizations with open board positions and a commitment to building diverse, inclusive boards.
40 nonprofits representing a variety of missions will be selected to table at Board Summit. Board position seekers are encouraged to visit the tables to learn more about the organizations and the open board positions each nonprofit is looking to fill. Executive directors and/or board chairs will be available to answer questions.
Nonprofits that would like to be featured at Board Summit must be current Mission Capital members and complete the application by March 18, 2019. Up to 40 nonprofit organizations will be selected and notified by March 29, 2019. Each must be represented by their executive leader and a key board member (ideally the board chair) at the Board Summit on June 6, 2019. Additional participation requirements are outlined in the application.
Nonprofits will be selected based on their readiness to provide interested candidates with a quality board recruitment and service experience. Organizations that demonstrate a commitment to building a diverse and inclusive board will be prioritized. An effort will be made to select a diverse group of organizations, representing many focus areas and organization sizes.
Registration for board position seekers will be available for $35, along with the list of featured nonprofits, beginning April 5, 2019.
Companies and associations interested in sponsoring the event and/or sending a group of their employees or members to Board Summit are encouraged to download the sponsorship information.
