Calgary Board Match Event: Speed Dating for Boards

DiverseCity onBoard Calgary hosted it’s first board matching event on March 13th, Board Match 2017: Speed Dating for Boards!

Held at Vertigo Theatre in the heart of downtown Calgary, the evening offered boards a chance to meet and learn more about candidates and educate those in attendance about the mission, values, and operations of their organizations. Rose Brow, Executive Director of Vertigo Theatre, said the feedback from the evening indicated it was “a big hit” and that Vertigo’s Board Chair is planning to contact several candidates they met at the event. Shelley Bareham, an artist and General Manager of Green Fools Theatre Society, noted that they were over 10 qualified candidates with whom they intend to follow up.
