We would love to expand our board, looking for board members that can be advocates for Listen to New York, have expertise in fundraising, leadership, education, building businesses and other areas. We're also trying to get household names in the music industry interested to serve as board members, as well as individuals who have strong ties within communities in the 5 boroughs.
We believe that board members can be essential to the growth and success of our non profit by:
- being advocates and ambassadors for our mission
- connecting us with the right people
- convincing potential donors to donate
- advising and leading through their expertise and experience
