Thanks to all those who completed an application for the Go Lead Idaho Board of Directors!
Are you passionate about motivating women to lead and demonstrating why it matters? Are you committed to sharing your time and talents to make our community a better place? Then you may be interested in becoming more involved with Go Lead Idaho! Go Lead Idaho is currently looking for board members and is now accepting applications!
“Serving on a non-profit board is not only a wonderful way to support a cause, but it also can be a powerful way to build your own skills and expertise. Individuals who serve on a board have the opportunity to develop and grow as leaders, cultivate new skill sets, and expand their network of peers, professionals, and community leaders.” – Board Source
The board typically meets once a month for a one-hour meeting, either in person or via conference call. The meetings are usually in the early evening or over the lunch hour. We have a variety of committees that work on membership, events, and communication. In addition to our monthly networking events, we also have a training series and host an annual gala. Our goal is for board members to stay actively involved in the planning of events, which are then carried out with the help of the Go Lead Idaho staff.
Board members serve a two-year term, with a maximum of three consecutive terms. This is a volunteer board position. If you are interested in becoming a Go Lead Idaho board member, please fill out an application for consideration before December 31, 2017. Thank you!
