In the Bay Area, SOMAA and Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance have partnered to provide alumni with opportunities and resources around nonprofit board service.

Making new board members productive and starting them out on a path to successful governance is essential to engagement and is a shared responsibility; both the board and the new director must collaborate to ensure successful organizational stewardship.  What are the best practices in this area, what should be part of an onboarding program? This roundtable will cover these topics along with committee structures. Does your board have an executive committee, a development or governance committee? Should they? Please join us for an intimate roundtable discussion about onboarding best practices and effective committee structures for high-performing nonprofit boards.

The roundtable will be facilitated by Seth Schalet, CEO of Prevent Blindness Northern California and its flagship See Well to Learn program.  Seth has 30 years of for-profit and nonprofit executive and board leadership spanning industries including technology, manufacturing, finance, consulting, public health and the arts. Having served on a dozen boards/committees, and as a current board director for StarVistaThe Hiller Aviation Museum and Sunday Friends, Seth has led startups, global operations, restructurings, and has extensive experience in board governance and board development.  For a Seth's full bio, please click here.

Seth will also provide attendees with helpful takeaway materials to apply to their organizations.
