W.O.M.A.N., Inc. is an organization that seeks to continuously improve our work, get stronger as an organization, and achieve greater impact in our community. As such, one of our 2014 priorities is to build the capacity and diversity of the Board of Directors so that this team of committed volunteers has the time, energy, capabilities, and skills needed to propel W.O.M.A.N., Inc. into our next chapter.
This year, we attended a board development event called The Board Match. It was organized by the Volunteer Center, and presented an organized forum for local nonprofits to connect with potential board members (about 1000 board candidates attend each year). W.O.M.A.N., Inc. sent Jill (ED), Mariya (Community Liaison Manager), and Lija (Board President) to the event to represent the organization and connect with potential board members. It was a great success – many impressive, passionate board candidates came to our table and expressed interest in serving and supporting W.O.M.A.N., Inc. We walked away with a full list of names and contact information, and are excited to follow-up with the incredible individuals we met at the event. We hope that among our list there are 3-4 high-quality board candidates excited to join us over the course of this year!
