Join a Nonprofit Board in Orange County.

There are thousands of nonprofit organizations in Orange County. Each one requires board leadership to advance mission effectiveness, business efficiency and strategic execution.

Serving on a nonprofit board is a great way to gain leadership skills, broaden your professional network and make a difference In the community. With OneOC’s Board Connection Program, you can play a vital role. Board Connection teaches emerging leaders and executives the skills necessary to successfully serve on a nonprofit board of directors—and then connects them to nonprofits that need skilled leaders to serve on their boards. OneOC can help you find a nonprofit that can utilize your specific interests and skills.


This 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

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.


I attended Board Service 101...Excellent class! The class is for individuals looking to serve on boards. I attended because our organization, Plant a Seed Institute, has a few open seats on our board. As executive director, I wanted to know more about the roles and responsibilities of sitting on a board as we launch our recruitment. We're in growth mode and our needs are changing.
