Joining a Not-for-Profit Board – are you interested?

  • 2 November 2019

Are you interested in joining a Not-for-Profit Board? Boardmatch Ireland can help.

Boardmatch is the Irish charity that specialises in charity and not-for-profit board recruitment. It connects passionate, skilled individuals with board vacancies in the sector, offering individuals an opportunity to give back to an important cause, share their skills at a strategic level, and challenge themselves. By matching individuals to board vacancies, charities and not-for-profits can develop their boards and grow their impact.

Boardmatch has two upcoming events in November, they are the following:

There is a “Candidate Information Session – Joining a Not-For-Profit Board”. This session will be held on Wednesday 13th November, kindly hosted by Deloitte (The Academy).

Who should attend? Anyone interested in joining a not-for-profit board!

This is your one-stop-shop for finding out all you need to know about joining a not-for-profit board, including:

  • How Boardmatch can help you find your board opportunity
  • How to get the most from the Boardmatch website
  • Training Opportunities
  • Panel Discussion with Trustees who have joined a board through Boardmatch
  • Q&A and Networking

This information session will run from 6-7.15pm. Tickets cost €5. Register here.

The second event is the Charity Trustee Speed-Dating on Wednesday November 27th from 6-8pm at the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD).

The event’s concept is to continue to make it more accessible for skilled individuals and charities to meet. Boardmatch wants to encourage further independent transparent trustee recruitment, so charities have further accountability at Board level. It also wants to break down any obstacles for individuals who wish to become trustees but do not know how to engage or contact charities in respect of their board vacancies. This event will bring charities with board vacancies and skilled individuals together in the one room to connect, the first step of Boardmatch’s 3 step process: Connect. Match. Impact.

The event will be similar in setup to a job fair. Each charity will have stand with information about their charity for the individuals attending.

This is a rare opportunity for individuals and charities to have informal meetings to discuss board roles and mutual opportunities. Join Boardmatch for this relaxed and informal event, with refreshments, if you are interested or keen to find out more about board opportunities. You will be able to talk to a range of different charities and individuals.
