Board Match Washington, D.C. Details
Board Match is a networking event providing nonprofit organizations an opportunity to meet with hundreds of highly qualified board candidates from major employers, across industries including: Technology, Financial Services, Legal, Real Estate, Government, Marketing/PR, Health Care and more.
After more than fourteen years of success in San Francisco, and expansion to Silicon Valley, New York, L.A. and Washington D.C., Board Match will be hosted again at the Washington Convention Center this spring, 2019. Board Match is much more than an opportunity for your executive director, board chair, and board members to meet prospective board members in one place. We select nonprofits through an application process that identifies your specific needs. We provide resources about board-building, and recruit a pool of high-quality and diverse candidates that also have access to training and resources about board service.
