BoardConnect: Meet & Greet Nonprofit Fair Information & Application 
 
Is your nonprofit organization looking to expand its board of trustees? Does your board need new leadership or new ideas? If so, then BoardConnect is your solution! This top-rated program for prospective nonprofit board members features two components: (1) training by content experts on essential topics to help prepare individuals to be proactive, highly effective members of a nonprofit board; and (2) facilitation of introductions to area nonprofit organizations interested in having participants join on a committee or board level.

Participants are selected for the BoardConnect program based on their relevant professional experience, skills, talents, and interest in nonprofit service, so that they can best be connected with appropriate nonprofit partners. 

BoardConnect Alumni have gone on to join boards that are creating social change such as, The Arts Council of Princeton, Campfire NJ, Dress for Success, Easel Animal Rescue, Enable, Homefront, Interfaith Caregivers, Kidsbridge, LALDEF, MillHill Child & Family Development, One Simple Wish, Princeton-Blairstown Center, Princeton Nursery School, Sourland Conservancy, Trenton Music Makers and many more.

We are offering two Virtual Meet & Greets, Oct. 14th and Nov. 18th., 7pm-8:30pm, via Zoom. You will have the opportunity to be introduced to the graduates of our training program.  We have a “speed-dating” like format to give you time to connect with the candidates.
