The United States Pony Clubs (USPC) Board of Governors is taking nominations for future Board Members.
Each year, millions of individuals dedicate their time and expertise to shape the future of nonprofit organizations through board service. Board members provide critical intellectual capital and strategic resources to power nonprofit success and strengthen communities. You could be one of those individuals. Are you committed to sharing your time and talents to help make the world a better place? Are you willing to be an enthusiastic advocate for the United States Pony Clubs and encourage others to get involved? Retaining and recruiting membership, supporting fundraising, and an understanding of philanthropic endeavors of the United States Pony Clubs. Do you have specialized skills and expertise that could benefit the United States Pony Clubs work?
Currently, we are looking for skill sets including development/fundraising, financial/CPA, safety, legal, administration, governance, and marketing. Serving on a board is a wonderful way to support a cause that you care about. But it also can be a powerful way to build your own skills and expertise. Individuals who serve on a board have the opportunity to develop and grow as leaders and cultivate new skill sets and expand their network of peers, professionals, community leaders, and community thought leaders.
