Virtual Networking: Nonprofit Board Members
Date: May 26, 2021
Time: 5:00-6:00pm PST
Co-host: Gregory Garabedian, Board Chair of Tualatin Valley Creates
Description: TVC’s networking events provide a platform for creatives and professionals working in the arts & culture sector to connect. This month, we invite board members of nonprofit organizations to join us in discussing the ins and outs of running a board. How do you create synergy and a structure that works for your board? How do you stay connected and involved with the organization you work for?
Each networking event begins with an opportunity to introduce yourself and your work. Then, we’ll explore engaging, timely discussion questions brought by TVC’s Board Chair Gregory Garabedian. You’ll have a chance to meet local peers in your discipline to exchange ideas, ask questions, and build connections.Register Now!
