Not-for-Profit Board Experience Program

Application for Board Mentors and Board Observers
Are you a Director of a NFP Board that is willing to invest in the careers of the next generation? Are you willing to give a CA an opportunity that may kick start their understanding of how a NFP operates?

Do you have a passion for NFPs and giving back to our community? Do you want to experience the dynamics and decision making involved in running a NFP Board? Do you want to accelerate your professional networks and advance your career?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might just be the person we are looking for!

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand are pleased to invite members to participate, as a Board Mentor or Board Observer, in the 2020 Not-for-Profit Board Experience Program. 

This Program is an exciting opportunity for young CA’s to observe a NFP Board and work one-on-one with a NFP Board member over several months. For mentors it is an opportunity to share your knowledge and experience of the NFP sector and your role as a Board member.
