On Board Event

We are excited about the upcoming OnBoard event on October 25th at the BB Hall of Fame.  This is a great opportunity for folks interested in joining a board of directors to meet organizations that are looking for board members.  It is like a board speed dating event without all the drama.  Details at OnBoard.
