Complimentary Seminar Presented at HIA-LI’s 31st Annual Business Trade Show & Conference
Corporate social responsibility is valued, and for some, even a necessity for doing business today. Many businesses see the value in being responsive to community needs (i.e., food insecurity, homelessness, disaster relief, drug abuse). Many professionals view nonprofit board service as a way to make a bigger contribution to organizations that provide valuable services to the community. Whether nonprofits are small or large, whether they have employees or are staffed strictly by volunteers, they are all mission-driven and are overseen by a Board of Directors.
Serving on a nonprofit board is typically a volunteer role. This panel will discuss how serving on a nonprofit board may be mutually beneficial for nonprofits, businesses, and professionals, including positive recognition and reputation; why certain businesses encourage board service; how nonprofits can benefit by being more connected to the business community; the benefits for businesses that connect with nonprofit; and the many ways for businesses to assist nonprofits. So, get on board, and start making a bigger impact today!
This seminar is intended for all business owners, businesspeople, professionals, nonprofit executives, and those currently serving on a nonprofit board or those thinking about joining a board. Additionally, millennials may be interested in learning about ways to enhance their professional skills by volunteering with nonprofits.
