If you're ready to join a board, but aren't sure how to find the one that's the best fit for you, don't miss this event.
Sponsored by Booth, the Law School, and the College, this event is a how-to for securing a non-profit board position with an insider's view from U of C alums on what to expect once you do.
We will be joined by Cynthia Remec, Executive Director of BoardAssist, the only no-fee board placement program in New York City. BoardAssist is a non-profit itself, with hundreds of board choices in the arts, the environment, and social justice reform. And it takes a personalized approach to helping you find just the right fit for you. While BoardAssist's opportunities are local, national, and international, most are based in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
