What happens after Bootcamp?
After Bootcamp connect to area nonprofits with mutual interests at a Get Connected: Nonprofit Speed Dating event. Dates and times will be announced soon here and in the PCNRC newsletter, Facebook & via Twitter!
In addition, bootcamp participants will also be able to connect with Rolfsen Stewardship Award nominees** through Rolfsen Stewardship Lunches if interested.
**Who are Rolfsen Stewardship Award nominees? Our community is fortunate to have many board members who exemplify at least three of BoardSource’s “Ten Basic Responsibilities of a Board.” Since 2005, Foellinger Foundation has honored these individuals annually through their Carl D. Rolfsen Stewardship Award.
We’ll connect you to nominees based on their experiences, your interests and your mutual desire to serve.
*If you have served on a nonprofit board for more than two years, contact the Paul Clarke Nonprofit Resource Center at firstname.lastname@example.org about alternative board member services in our community.
Board Bootcamp is a Get on Board program of the Paul Clarke Nonprofit Resource Center with grant support by Foellinger Foundation. In 2011, we partnered with YLNI to enhance and expand their existing program. After several years of success, we have since taken responsibility for the project, working with YLNI to share the opportunity with their audience.
