charitySTRONG staff have been busy talking up our free online board recruitment and director education programs.
On June 7, Laura Klein, Executive Director, spoke about developing the talent on your board to a group of local nonprofit leaders convened by Sax LLP as part of their Fist to Five series on nonprofit sustainability.
Later that day, Klein and Allie Schlapp, charitySTRONG’s Program Manager, attended The Board Match’s second annual nonprofit board recruitment fair. Schlapp and Klein met nonprofit leaders from around the city and provided information about charitySTRONG’s free director education program, Directors U, and our core course, Good Practices for Good Boards.
Tapping interest in board service among young leaders, Klein discussed the benefits of joining a board with a group of volunteers at Franklin Templeton Investments on June 14. “It’s a great way to use your skills to help an organization that you care about,” Klein commented. “You are all really smart; there are lots of nonprofits that need you.”
