Non-profit networking event to be held
If you’ve ever thought about joining a non-profit board of directors, but are unsure of how to find the right organization, plan to attend a networking event designed to help young leaders who are interested in board service connect with local nonprofits on Thursday, Oct. 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Providence Marriott Downtown, 1 Orms St.
Sponsored by the Initiative for Nonprofit Excellence/Emerging Leaders Program at the Rhode Island Foundation, the United Way Young Leaders Circle, R.I. Economic Development Corporation, the Providence Foundation and R.I. Young Professionals Association, the event is meant to be an introduction to opportunities for board service.
Simone Joyaux, an expert on board governance, will provide a mini-lesson about board service and briefly answer audience questions, followed by informal networking.
The event is free for young professionals, but pre-registration is required and space is limited. Visit www.rifoundation.org/INE for more information.
