Board Connection

Join a Nonprofit Board in Orange County

There are thousands of nonprofits in Orange County.  Each and every one of these nonprofits requires board leadership to change and strengthen our communities. YOU can play a vital role.

What are the responsibilities of serving on a nonprofit board?
Where do you begin?

OneOC’s Board Connection program teaches prospective board members the skills necessary to successfully serve on a board. OneOC can help you find a nonprofit that can utilize your specific interests and skills.


Prospective Board Members:

Join us for the next Board Connection Training, an informational session on becoming a board member.  Following completion of the training, participant are entered into the connection program.

This interactive seminar engages participants on the following topics:

  • Nonprofit sector
  • Facts about Orange County boards
  • Characteristics of boards at different organizational lifecycle stages
  • Board responsibilities

Review the efforts and contexts of nonprofits with OneOC Staff.

Current Board Members:

Current board members are invited to attend the training as a refresher session on what’s new in board management. Come share your experiences and insights with us and to take back to your board.  Understand the roles and responsibilities of boards, and reframe the board’s efforts – from rubber stamping to action-oriented.
