Dear ABFE member and supporter,
The Association of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE) is now seeking candidates to serve on its Board of Directors. This is an opportunity for ABFE members to contribute to ABFE and the field of philanthropy.
Board members are elected for two-year terms. The Board seeks gender, racial, and geographic diversity, and grantmakers committed to advancing strategies that improve conditions in Black communities are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, the Board endeavors to continuously expand the expertise and perspectives represented on the Board. Candidates should have demonstrated leadership and an understanding of ABFE’s mission and its work to strengthen philanthropic investments in Black communities.
The Board is particularly interested in recruiting foundation trustees, attorneys with partner-level law firm experience, leaders from community foundations, and investment managers.
Nominations for positions on the ABFE Board of Directors will be accepted through January 6, 2014. A slate of candidates will be presented to the membership for election at the annual meeting during the ABFE Annual Conference in Washington, DC in June 2014.
See below for board service overview and current Board of Directors, as well as a link to the nomination form. With your input and recommendations, we are able to identify our future leaders – please participate in the important process by nominating a fellow member (or yourself) for board service.
