Just in case you didn’t hear the news this week, LinkedIn for Good launched a new board recruitment program for nonprofits. You can find a step-by-step list on how to apply in this post
Launched today, LinkedIn Board Connect for Nonprofit Organizations is a new board member recruiting program that enables nonprofits to easily tap into LinkedIn’s 175+ million strong network of professionals. With nonprofits needing to fill approximately two million empty board seats annually, LinkedIn Board Connect could be the missing link in helping nonprofits make board member recruitment a much easier and more rewrding process.
At the core of the program is a LinkedIn premium service called Talent Finder that will be provided to participating nonprofits at no charge – a $1,000 annual value. To apply to become a “beta” partner of the LinkedIn Board Connect Program, please follow the steps below:
1. Decide who will be the primary contact and user of Board Connect within your organization and have them complete their LinkedIn Profile to 100% completeness.
2. “Connect” with your nonprofit’s current board members.
