It feels good to give back. To family, to friends, to community. A variety of ways exist to do it, one of the most prominent in Clatsop County is board membership.
You’ve met the people who are veterans of the trade. They’re attending events and fundraisers as if it’s their favorite hobby, talking to fellow charitable humans, excited to introduce others to the importance of their cause.
But is that the only way to be a good board member?
A solid board will attract a diverse set of skills, accompanied by a diverse set of perspectives and personalities. A balance needs to exist between the members excited to advocate, and the members who support the cause a little more “behind the scenes”.
The people who make up a board matter, and a good fit is so important to progressing the mission.
To learn more about the UWCC board, how it functions, expectations of board members and how to apply to become one, an informational session is being held 12:15-1pm on Monday, March 22nd. Come with questions prepared or just to listen.
Contact Kassia for more information and a link to the session.
