On Board Conference

On Board, hosted by the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at Chicago Booth, brings together students, alumni, and nonprofit professionals to discuss key trends and best practices in nonprofit board service.

At the Rustandy Center, we believe that board service is an important and effective way for our alumni and students to give back while building leadership skills. Further, we are committed to the notion that thoughtful discourse about the role and evolution of nonprofit boards, as they seek to maximize impact on their chosen social issue while maintaining financial stability, is a worthwhile endeavor.

On Board is organized to speak to varying levels of professional expertise and highlight issues common among nonprofit organizations and their associated boards of directors.

In 2017-18, we will host the following On Board events:

  • On Board in New York City will be held Friday, November 3, 2017.
  • On Board in Chicago will be held Friday, April 13, 2018.
  • Nonprofit Board Forum in San Francisco will be held in June 2018.
