    Board Fair

    Young Professionals: Are you looking for a unique opportunity to share your talents, build your resume, and support your local community?

Candidates will have the opportunity to visit with representatives from dozens of nonprofit organizations, to see whether they are interested in pursuing an opportunity to sit on their boards or committees. At the end of the evening, the candidates will decide which organizational boards they are interested in exploring further, and we can facilitate next steps!
