Unlike matching services that are paid by companies to place their employees on a board, we were the client with BoardAssist. I really valued that BoardAssist was a nonprofit themselves with their top priority being to address our needs. Their 20 plus years of board matching experience helps them identify candidates who will fit well, become leaders and truly engage, as our fantastic placements have. The proof: the majority of our current Executive Committee came through BoardAssist including our board chair.
On behalf of the Board of NSCC, I just wanted to thank you for the Trustees that you have given us. They always fulfill their financial commitments and have been consistently superior in terms of balance, wisdom, and involvement. I can honestly say your work has allowed us to fulfill our mission and help all the children, parents and educators that need our services so badly.
I know you are not expecting this letter – and I don’t write letters like this often – but your work has been so transformative that I think your funders need to know how important it is.
Our BoardAssist candidates have been amazing additions to our Board of Directors. They bring enthusiasm and dedication to our agency and believe in our mission. BoardAssist is a very needed service and the screening and assurance you provide are extremely helpful to a busy executive and Board. In these tough and competitive times, it is wonderful to know that we have a resource to turn to in our efforts to recruit board members with the ‘time, talent and treasure’ we need.
BoardAssist has been a terrific resource for Hunter. They were wonderful to work with, and quickly identified candidates of high caliber that would be a good fit for the Hunter College Foundation board. The selection of appropriate board members can be sensitive and difficult, and BoardAssist helped us move through the process swiftly and successfully. As a public institution with limited resources, we are deeply grateful for their invaluable assistance at no cost.
Working with you was such a pleasurable and efficient process. Each resume you sent us was a good fit for LINC. I appreciated the way in which you kept in touch with us during the interview and decision making process. Your insight into each candidate was an important element in our decisions. Effective board members are so essential to nonprofits and your help makes such a difference.
In every case, you hit the ball out of the park, identifying individuals who are just the right fit for us. Another aspect of working with you that has so impressed me is that you have made this whole process easy. I know from 15 years of experience that Board recruitment can be and often is a time consuming, messy process, with lots of wild goose chases and dead-end streets. But you somehow managed to do it with a minimum of fuss and bother, putting us in contact only with individuals who you knew you suit us.
“BoardAssist has introduced the Patrons Program to over 50 professionals who have ultimately joined inner city elementary school Advisory Boards. Their screening process is thorough and allows us to meet individuals who are perfect matches for our organization. BoardAssist is efficient and only introduces candidates who are serious about making real differences in the lives of inner city children.”
Bringing a BoardAssist candidate onto our board was particularly efficient thanks to your careful and intelligent understanding of Wildcat’s board requirements, as well as your hands on approach during the entire process. We are extremely grateful to you. You are providing a unique, valuable service to New York’s non-profit sector. I look forward to working with you on this for many years to come.
Cynthia Remec is the incredible Executive Director of Board Assist, which connects non-profits to Board Members. I cannot say enough good things about Cynthia and the impact on NYWC of her work. We were talking about other board matching services yesterday, and the word we agreed on was that those other places were “humiliating.” Cynthia is the opposite, She is respectful, positive, and cares a lot about both the board members and the organizations she works with.
[From the moment I first spoke to BoardAssist] I felt as if I had been sent a ‘guardian angel’ whose rolodex and compassion for the needs of organizations like A.R.T./New York could introduce us to individuals from sectors currently lacking (and sorely needed) on our board: investment banking; international finance; and corporate/government relations. You are amazing; and we are blessed that you came into our lives.
