Board Service

Nonprofit organizations often have a need for individuals to serve on their board of directors as well as on various committees. These professional volunteers provide input and oversight of the organization's activities and advocate for their cause.

Serving on a Board
It is an honor to be asked to serve on the board of a nonprofit organization, and it's important to have a thorough understanding of the organization before committing to this great responsbility. This list of questions to ask before serving on a board should be asked by individuals interested in serving on a board. Nonprofit organizations should be asking themselves these questions as well to ensure the health of the organization.

Board Leadership Forum


In October 2015, the Center for Nonprofits and United Way of Greater Chattanooga hosted the inaugural Board Leadership Forum, bringing together board members who form the foundation of our city's nonprofits and the generation that will form the future. The Forum was attended by veteran board members and young professionals interested in board service. 

Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to engage the young professionals who completed the Board Leadership Forum training in the organization. These young professionals are interested in becoming board members and have a variety of strengths and skills that will benefit your board:
