A hallmark event she chaired several times was the UCWBG’s “Linking Professionals to Nonprofits.” This biennial event focused on introducing and pairing talented young professionals to nonprofits who were interested in attracting junior board members or adding to their talent pool. It helped to introduce a new wave of professionals to what is hoped to be a lifetime of nonprofit board service.
