Area nonprofits seeking board members, and individuals interested in serving on nonprofit boards and committees, now have access to a new networking tool.
Triangle BoardConnect, a free online service of the Executive Service Corps of the Greater Triangle, in partnership with the N.C. Center for Nonprofits, Triangle Community Foundation and Triangle United Way, allows nonprofits to find potential board members from Chatham, Durham, Orange and Wake counties.
Registered nonprofits have access to a variety of search options within the tool, including an automated email sent every three days that contains a list of candidates matching pre-entered requirements.
BoardConnect also markets the program to local nonprofits, ensures listings are up-to-date and provides educational programs for nonprofits and individuals around board leadership and effectiveness.
The process is anonymous until the individual decides to share his or her contact information with the organization.
The program uses boardnetUSA’s Internet website, which has served nonprofits across the U.S. for several years.
