Board Matching is a Win-Win for All Involved. Here’s How It Works.
Step 1: Nomination
Employers nominate stand-out candidates to participate in the board-matching program. Candidates then complete an application, identifying types of organization that interest them most.
Step 2: Interview
BVU interviews candidates who are interested in nonprofit board member positions to learn more about their backgrounds and passions, and then shares with them specific nonprofit board opportunities that meet their interests and match their skills.
Step 3: Referral
Once candidates decide which nonprofit board to pursue, BVU contacts that organization to recommend them. The two sides meet to see if it’s a good fit. If both agree to the board match, candidates move forward in the organization’s recruitment process and join a committee or are elected to a volunteer board position.
Step 4: Training
Board matching candidates attend a three-hour board membership training seminar to prepare them to effectively serve as nonprofit board members.
