Last Wednesday we hosted our second Board Speed Dating of the year at GGLO’s Space at the Steps. Fourteen of our nonprofit partners came out to meet Bridge graduates from our last class in April and graduates from previous years who have recently decided that now’s the right time to make a board connection! Graduates got a chance to meet with organizations that interest them for five fifteen minute “dates” throughout the night.
Andy Schroeder and Jennifer Olegario were pleasantly surprised to run into each other: they had graduated from the same Bridge class in 2009! Jennifer was attending to find a good board match and Andy, a board member for Theatre Puget Sound, was there to interview potential board members.
Bridge Graduates and Bridge Partners meet for a 15 minute “date.”
A BIG thank you to our Bridge Partner organizations that attended our speed dating last Wednesday!
