Sedgwick County has more than 3,000 registered nonprofit organizations, and many of them are actively recruiting young professionals to sit on their Boards and committees to cultivate the next generation of community leaders.

YPW Board Placement 101:  A Panel Discussion on Community Involvement

Have you thought about applying for a Board position, but weren’t sure what it would entail?  Come to this event to learn from a dynamic panel of YPs with Board experience. Based on your questions, the panel will give their advice and share their own personal experiences sitting on nonprofit boards across the city. They’ll also take the time to explain what you can expect and what you can gain from such service.

The Board Placement Program (for YPW members only) is a two-part series and we require that you attend both events to 1) get the full scope of responsibilities involved when sitting on a Board and to 2) network with participating nonprofits. The first event is this Board Placement 101; the second, the Board Placement Speed Networking event. We require that all interested members attend a 101 event prior to attending the Speed Networking.

Register –  If the event is full, check later to see if a spot opens.

Thank you to our sponsor, Davis Moore !
