Board Matching Service
Welcome to the Matching Service for the Boards, Committees & Governance
Centre. The Service is aimed at:
The service is designed to help individuals make a deeper, longer lasting
connection with their community, and to allow community groups to access
a new pool of skilled and willing helpers. As one community group recently
commented: "Your advertisement resulted in our finding not only one but
two excellent Board members for our committee. We are very grateful for
the service you provide, as there is no way we could otherwise have known
of these women."
- Individuals looking to make a stronger connection with their
community by joining a Board or Committee of Management;
- Workplace volunteering programs looking to make a long-lasting
difference to their communities by putting their hand up to join a Board
or Committee of management; and
- Community group Boards or Committees of Management who are
looking for new members.
