Join us at CNM in partnership with cityCurrent to learn more about nonprofit board service. How do you get on a board? What should you know before you serve? Learn from a panel of nonprofit board members to better understand their journey and advice for those seeking to serve the nonprofit community in a big way through board service.

  1. Do you have a heart for service?
  2. Are you thinking about joining the board of a non-profit but aren’t sure if you have the time, treasure or talent necessary to be a valuable member?
  3. Maybe you’ve already joined a board but aren’t quite sure of the full scope of your responsibilities.
