Every year, the Multicultural Leadership Program hosts its Board Networking Fair and this year was another successful event for the class of 2020. This event is a unique opportunity for McLean County nonprofit organizations to meet face-to-face with MCLP participants—a group of engaged, passionate individuals—to fill volunteer and board positions.
Nonprofits represented at the networking fair included ABC Counseling and Family Services, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, BCAI School of Arts, For A Better Tomorrow, Heartland Community College Foundation, Heartland Head Start, INtegRIty Counseling, League of Women Voters, LIFE Center for Independent Living, Marcfirst, Mid Central Community Action, Prairie Fire Theatre, YWCA McLean County, and 261 Fearless.
“Local boards are always seeking diverse representation,” said MCLP Executive Director Julie Emig. “MCLP encourages graduates to take leadership roles in the community, so this is a perfect way for our 2020 class and local nonprofits to connect.”
Current MCLP participant Sharon Peoples spoke about her experience meeting with the leadership from the different organizations: “The Board Networking Fair last Thursday tied a bow on Servant Leadership. We were introduced to several great organizations and opportunities to serve the multicultural community of Bloomington-Normal.”
