Non Profit Organisation Board Memberships // It may sound a little self-serving, but there’s an easy way to advance your career, get networked, while you’re also doing good for others. Serve on a nonprofit board.
Of course, the primary reason you should serve on a nonprofit board is that you want to make the world a better place and you care about the cause. But, serving on a board and bringing your knowledge, energy, and expertise to the table is something that can not only benefit the organization but you as well.
Many reputable and leading charities have seasoned business leaders serving on their boards. That means, that for those starting out in their careers, or perhaps wanting to get to the next level, serving as a nonprofit board member gives you the chance to meet and network with community leaders. The experience of working with senior executives at a nonprofit also brings a unique experience many junior professionals might not get for years—and that’s the experience of closely working with seasoned business leaders.
Let’s face it; most nonprofits operate with budgets significantly less than $1 million. Many have budgets of under $100,000. But, nonprofits have needs beyond just financial donations so they can become sustainable. Many rely on the expertise and knowledge of business and community professionals—especially board members—to help them advance their missions.
You can end up with the CEO of a major company working alongside you on a board committee. Additionally, many nonprofits have events, and this is another opportunity for younger professionals to network and connect socially with leaders in the community.
