Annual board conference

Boards of Directors rely on members to bring a range of skills and experiences to the boardroom, and this skill base must be dynamic and evolving. Our annual Board Development Conference will happen each fall, bringing together current and future board members, nonprofit professionals, and other stakeholders for a day of learning and networking.

Join us on October 28, 2017 from 9am-1:30 pm at Greenfield Community College.  

BOARD matching

Board Matching brings together "board certified" attendees of the Board Basics session with nonprofits seeking new board members. Organizations with board vacancies will register with Leadership Pioneer Valley, attend a Board Matching  event, and connect with those looking for the right board service fit. Each event will have several short, structured "interview" periods where those seeking to serve can connect with organizations filling vacancies.  Leadership Pioneer Valley will provide formal follow-up to ensure promising matches get connected after the event.
