BPW PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES
The Realities & Rewards of
Serving on a Nonprofit Board
A Panel Discussion
Friday, April 1
Curious about what it takes to serve on the board of directors for a nonprofit organization? Wondering whether you are qualified, how much time it requires or where to learn about open positions?
These are just a few of the questions that will be answered during this virtual panel discussion featuring some of our community’s most experienced nonprofit leaders (and BPW members!).
There’s no question that serving on a nonprofit board can be personally rewarding. It’s a great way to support
a cause that’s close to your heart and give back to your community. Board service can also be a career catalyst, helping you to build valuable relationships, hone critical skills and elevate your professional profile.
The purpose of this panel discussion is to demystify nonprofit board service by answering the questions and challenging the assumptions that hold many of us back from volunteering to serve. You will also learn about open board positions and how to “throw your hat in the ring” to serve one of the many local nonprofits doing great things for our community.

As quickly as it began, legislative session in Tallahassee is coming to an end. Over the course of the past eight weeks, thousands of bills have been introduced with varying levels of success. Now, with both chambers hashing out the final details of the budget, the bills that made the cut are headed to the Governor’s desk for final approval.
It is a mixed bag for policies impacting working women and their families. Thanks to all who took action to protect reproductive healthcare last month, a central pillar of the BPW/FL’s state policy platform. HB 5 passed both chambers and is headed to the Governor’s desk, but there is still an opportunity to ask the Governor to veto the bill. If you want to make your voice heard, you can email him here.
