I am very proud to have been elected to the National Board of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network a few months ago. YNPN’s mission and specific focus on assuring the future of the non-profit sector resonates with me deeply. The national organization is in such a key moment and I am excited to help shape how things will proceed.
Now that I am board member (with all of the responsibilities associated with that), I look forward to sharing my lessons and reflections along the way with you, my dear readers. Additionally, I expect that this will allow me to see more clearly the perspective of board members when it comes to fundraising, which I hope will allow me to be more effective in my work going forward.
I already have one or two blog posts percolating on board issues, so keep your eyes peeled for those in the coming weeks! Whether you are a board member, work with them or have no experience with board members at all, I also look forward to hearing your viewpoints and encouraging deeper dialogues in this area.
