NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for YNPN Board of Directors, Assistant Program Chair - APPLY HERE!

Serving on the YNPN Lowcountry Board is a fantastic opportunity to put your skills to use and take your involvement with YNPN to the next level as we build the systems and capacity of our organization. It's also a great way to focus on your own professional development by meeting new people, enhancing your leadership skills and expanding your network.

What you need to know:

  • New board members must commit to two years of service as a Director
  • Board members must attend a minimum of six regular Board of Directors meetings each year and are required to attend the annual Board Retreat. 
  • Board members also chair or volunteer on a committee and attend YNPN Lowcountry events whenever possible.
  • The board is a working board as YNPN Lowcountry does not have staff.  The monthly time commitment ranges from 12 to 20 hours per month, depending on one's role on the board.
  • Board members will be asked to sign a commitment form and conflict of interest policy.
  • Board members must maintain current membership with YNPN Lowcountry and make a financial commitment of membership.
  • It is not a requirement that all board members work for a nonprofit organization, but an individual's work or volunteer experience should demonstrate commitment to the nonprofit sector.
