Get On Board!, San Antonio's newest board recruiting summit, was hugely successful. Over 160 professionals connected with over 70 nonprofit agencies seeking the next generation of board members and volunteers on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Thank you to our sponsors Aventine Hill Partners and The Prestigious Mark for supporting our event.
Guest speakers Peggy W. Walker of Bank of America Private Wealth Management and Brandon A. Logan of SRG Athletics shared the importance of board leadership and the impact it can make in our community. “For me it was about being persistent and having that grip, and aligning my board thoughts, where I want to serve with my direct passions,” said Logan. For some nonprofits this was the first time that they had participated with Get On Board! “This is our first year at Get On Board!, and what a great event it turned out to be! I’m so glad we came. I’ve met some great nonprofits and potential board members. Thank you for inviting us,” said Reverend Lili Kristan, Executive Director, J-Jireh Ministries, Inc.
