Board Match Los Angeles
WHEN: September 20, 2018
TIME: 4:00 - 6:30 pm
WHERE: LAX Campus, Google, Silicon Beach

Board Match Los Angeles 2018 is an Open-air Event
The Board Match is more than a networking event, it’s a strategy for long term board recruitment and retention. This open air event in Los Angeles will host up to 100 nonprofits at Google's main campus, and we're targeting companies in the region to get their best and brightest out to meet you.

Board Match provides 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, Marketing/PR, Health Care and more.
Board Match is much more than an opportunity for your executive director, board chair, and board members to meet prospective board members. We select nonprofits through an application process that identifies your specific needs and provides training for your leadership about board-building. We then recruit a pool of high-quality and diverse candidates that also have access to training and resources about board service.

Each Board Match event includes 100 - 150 nonprofits, and regularly recruits 600+ candidates who attend the event. Up to 250 new board members are placed as a result of each Board Match event! Participation fees for the Board Match are determined on a sliding scale based on your 501(c)3's annual operating budget, and include training and webinars for senior staff and board members:

Fee Schedule:
$250: Level 1, budget under $400K
$275: Level 2, budget $400K - $999K
