Thursday, April 17 | 5:30 – 8:00 | Allen County Public Library

We’re excited to announce record emerging leader registration for Get Connected: Nonprofit Speed Dating.

And we expect registrations will continue to climb following YLNI’s upcoming My City Summit where we’ll invite participants to connect with you through meaningful service.

Because we expect so many more emerging leaders, we’re inviting more nonprofits to attend. Register by April 10th to get your seat at the table.

What is Get Connected?

Organizations feedback tells us how useful it is:

“First, I want to tell you that I really enjoyed the “speed dating” experience!  I am happy to report that I’ve met with 2 of the emerging leaders and by george – we have a connection!  … I am very pleased.  I know that [redacted] is also going to do some work with Fort Wayne Trails, which is great because we do some partnering with them!  What a great opportunity you provided for all of us. THANK YOU!!”

– Carol Cavell, Trees Indiana, following Get Connected

And we tell organizations that Get Connected is not meant as a program to find your immediate next board member.

Instead, it’s a place to make initial connections – and provide opportunities for meaningful service that may well lead to a board governance relationship. Participants are encouraged to build trust through committee or task force work prior to considering board governance.

A  number of emerging leaders who attend have participated in Board Bootcamp – facilitated by Mike Stone.

Board governance is a serious commitment – and we urge both parties to get training, take time, and build trust.

So, we invite your organization to attend – to Get Connected to emerging leaders who want to serve you. Take a simple step to reaching out and connecting with a new audience – one that is eager to serve our community.
