Joining a nonprofit board will not only benefit a nonprofit organization, but it will provide amazing benefits to fill up your cup (figuratively speaking, of course). Let’s explore some great reasons to either join or expand your efforts with a nonprofit board.
Things You’ll Need to Join a Board
Meet New People with Common Interests
When you put multiple brains together that all have a common passion, wonderful things happen. Have you ever heard the expression “two heads are better than one?” It’s exactly like that—put multiple people in one room who all have the best interests of an organization in mind and magical things will happen. The possibilities for new ideas are endless.
Boost Your Resume
One opportunity leads to another, leads to another. It’s not selfish to want to boost your resume, as long as that’s not your only motivation for joining a board. Plus, joining one board will give you even more experience to join another board and leave an even bigger mark on the world.
Become a Mentor for Future Board Members
If you’re a seasoned veteran in the nonprofit sector as a board member, consider mentoring the up-and-coming class of future board influencers. Everybody starts somewhere. Seek out some stand-out talent that you’ve seen involved in the lifeblood of your organization. Lend them your expertise if they’re willing to listen. You won’t be disappointed in watching them grow and impact the organization.
