About the board member role
Volunteer board members complete a variety of administrative tasks to keep a small non-profit, with no staff, going. Volunteer board members attend virtual bi-monthly board meetings, virtual bi-weekly working sessions, interVivos in-person special events, as well as other ad-hoc in-person activities, which mostly fall on evenings or weekends. Also, they are interVivos ambassadors who strongly believe in our vision of a generation of inspired and informed leaders.
A former board member had the following to say of her experience on the board: “I learned valuable lessons during my time with the board. My understanding of board governance and board accountability developed substantially. I also had the opportunity to meet an incredible number of people, and my network grew. I attribute this to the array of topics and professional paths that intersect at this organization. I was given many chances to try so many new roles and responsibilities. I am so grateful to interVivos and its board members for new friendships, many laughs and diverse experiences.”
Volunteer board members are expected to complete a two-year term after successfully completing a 3-month trial period. This is an unpaid volunteer position. There is also the opportunity to be elected to a vacant leadership role after successfully completing the 3-month trial, e.g., Director of Digital Engagement, Director of Programs and Events.
Application deadline: Apply here by Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at 11:30 PM.
