EDGE in the Boardroom

Serving on a non-profit board is a great way to grow your professional skills and network while making an impact in the community. EDGE in the Boardroom is our annual opportunity to connect the region's young professionals to nonprofit boards in need of volunteer leadership. If you're interested in joining a board, want to know more about nonprofits in the region, or just want to network with other young professionals, this event is for you! 

At our virtual EDGE in the Boardroom, you can expect to:

  • meet regional nonprofits and learn about their missions
  • ask the nonprofits questions about their board and committee commitments to decide if they’re right for you
  • connect with fellow young professionals from around Sacramento
