MACKINAC ISLAND -- The Detroit Regional Chamber plans to recruit business leaders to help manage nonprofit organizations in Metro Detroit, some of which struggle to find skilled executives to oversee their operations.
BoardConnect SE, a collaboration with Nonprofit Enterprise at Work Inc. in Ann Arbor, which helps civic groups better manage operations, will provide training and recruiting activities for nonprofit board members in Metro Detroit.
The partnership is scheduled to be announced today at the Chamber's annual Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island, a gathering of some 1,700 business, political and educational leaders that concludes Sunday.
'We find many executives want to be part of a nonprofit board, but they may not know what is involved or where to find the right match,' said Karen Batchelor, the Chamber's senior vice president of regional affairs. "
