Looking for a nonprofit or for-profit board to join? Consider becoming a member of the Black Board of Directors Project founded in 1983 by Marvin Perry. It's open to everyone and is dedicated to advancing the leadership skills in the community. I've been a member for several years, and it has been a great experience. It has enabled me to find leadership positions on both for-profit and non-profit boards important to the community.
About the Black Board of Directors Project
The Black Board of Directors Project (BBODP), an advanced leadership program, was started in Phoenix in 1984 to fill various corporate, charitable and public policy-making boards and commissions at the local, state and national levels and other leadership positions.
In the organization's 33-year history, BBODP has placed over members on various boards and commissions.
