After five successful years of OnBoard events on the peninsula hosted by Thrive, SVCN partnered with CEN and Thrive this year to host the first OnBoard Match event in San Jose. Local nonprofits and prospective board members had the chance to learn more about each other in hopes of finding their best match. It was a joy to see so many passionate people in one room discussing ways to improve our community.
Thirty-five Silicon Valley organizations participated in our inaugural San Jose event representing a wide array of causes, including the arts, environment, education, health, and social services. Over 75 board seekers filled the room with energy and excitement for meeting likeminded and community driven individuals.
It was a great evening connecting passionate community members looking for greater ways to give back with organizations doing the work they care about. The event also gave local nonprofits the opportunity to meet some of Silicon Valley’s many talented individuals ready to share their knowledge, skills, and networks to support them in fulfilling their missions.
Be sure to check back for updates on future OnBoard Match events and board development workshops.
