Board Connection

Because of growing concern around COVID-19, and following the guidelines issued by Governor Baker’s office, we have made the decision to postpone our annual Board Connection Training.

Use your skills. Share your passion. Impact your community.

United Way’s Board Connection event brings together professionals seeking meaningful community leadership opportunities with local nonprofits looking to strengthen their volunteer boards.

Our Board Connection Certificate Program, presented in partnership with John Hancock, is a comprehensive curriculum led by professionals from the nonprofit and for-profit sectors. The program prepares you for what it really means to be an outstanding nonprofit board member.

The training sessions culminate with the Board Connection Agency Fair, where participants meet and network with local nonprofit organizations that have open board positions.
