Once the process for the event was explained, I found my first table and waited for the bell to sound, indicating that my five minutes to speak with the designated nonprofit had begun.
Between the ESC’s presentation and the actual speed-dating, we had each been given a packet containing information about the organizations that we would be speaking with.I have been reassured by Trudy Smith, Executive Director of the Executive Service Corps of the Triangle (ESC), who notes that she is committed to “raising consciousness about the value of younger generations” as board members for nonprofit organizations.Upon rolling into RTP Headquarters early that Wednesday morning, I was beyond pleased to find a sea of young professionals that seemed to be in about the same life-stage as myself.Because board membership stands out on a resume, individuals are able to make a difference while also advancing their careers.When I found out that the goal of the event wasn’t simply to find volunteers, but to find board members, I hesitated.Honestly, when I pictured the boards of these types of organizations, I envisioned seasoned business people near or past retirement.
