Get Connected: Nonprofit Speed Dating
Get Connected is an event to introduce emerging leaders to area organization where they can begin to make an impact through meaningful committee work and eventually potential board service.
Nonprofits and emerging leaders who wish to serve with them are invited to start conversations.
Structured “speed-dating” formatted networking, with informal social mingling to follow.
Nonprofit board members will meet 20-30 emerging leaders interested in getting involved with a nonprofit organization with an eye for a potential board leadership role in the future.
Emerging leaders will be introduced to 20-30 opportunities to serve.

Emerging leaders come to the event with questions, having learned a little about each nonprofit from a packet provided beforehand (past program packets are linked below).
Nonprofits are asked to select one appropriate representative (board chair, nominating or board development chair, etc.) to attend.
Nonprofit board members come to the event knowing what roles an emerging leader can play in your organization – whether through committee work, task forces or volunteerism.
Both participants come prepared to collect contact information from emerging leaders and follow up.
