Board Match Washington D.C.
WHEN: May 11, 2017
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, Marketing/PR, Health Care and more.
After eleven years of success in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and most recently in New York City, Board Match is thrilled to launch in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. 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, provides training for your leadership about board-building, and recruits a pool of high-quality and diverse candidates that also have access to training and resources about board service.

Board Match by the numbers:
Each Board Match event includes up-to 150 nonprofits, and regularly recruits 1,000+ 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:
