Leaders on Board has gone virtual! All sessions will now be hosted via Zoom. Leaders On Board helps nonprofits find new members who bring their diverse perspectives, skills, and experiences to the important work of their organizations.
A program of Leadership Greater Hartford, Leaders on Board trains its participants in board governance and nonprofit organizational structure and prepares them as candidates for board membership, then, connects them with nonprofits looking for board members. Leaders On Board has a proven track record – helping to place more than 750 individuals on the boards of more than 140 nonprofit organizations!
The first component is for all individuals to participate in a New Member Orientation. The Orientation reviews the basic board membership roles and responsibilities and outlines the “nuts and bolts” of board service. Following participation in a Board Member Orientation, individuals are invited to meet nonprofit managers at an event called Express Match, a sort of "speed dating for nonprofits." Quick introductions in a structured environment, using a tested method, allow all parties to efficiently ascertain whether there is a match in their needs and interests. Leadership Greater Hartford facilitates the matches, putting people in touch with nonprofits where mutual interest was expressed. LGH supports both.
Throughout the region there are hundreds of nonprofits seeking to enhance the quality of life in their communities and improve the lives of their neighbors and constituents, while hundreds of people are looking for ways to apply their values, interests, and skills in ways that serve the greater good - this where Leaders On Board makes a difference!
