RACINE COUNTY – A first-ever, free event aims to match local nonprofits with prospective board members. Racine County Nonprofit Draft Day is planned for 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 22 at River Bend Nature Center, 3600 N. Green Bay Rd., Caledonia.

Nonprofit Draft Day is hosted by Leadership Racine, a program of Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce (RAMAC). It’s modeled after a professional sports draft to connect local nonprofits with community members who are interested in serving on a board of directors. This is a hassle-free opportunity for nonprofits and prospective board members to meet in a productive and fun environment.

During this draft-style event, each community member is a free agent. They will get a chance to talk to 15 local nonprofits who are the scouts. Free agents are asked to drop their name or business card with various scouts that they feel are a good fit for their potential service. Then, the scouts will choose from the free agents that they feel align with their mission, vision, and values. At the end of the event, the picks will be announced! You could be drafted!
