BoardAssist announces their new citywide Young Professionals Leadership Council

BoardAssist is pleased to announce the formation of their new citywide Young Professionals Leadership Council (YPLC).  Last fall BoardAssist launched a junior board matching program to engage the countless outstanding millennials who approach BoardAssist for board seats every day.  What quickly became clear is that once placed on a young professionals board, these millennial philanthropists wanted to meet with others like themselves to network and share best practices among New York City junior boards. The BoardAssist YPLC is doing just that – providing an exciting new forum for young professionals to share what’s working best on their boards and learn from others.

Founding YPLC members include:
