We’re thrilled to announce openings in our Adjunct Partners Program!
“We seek individuals interested in connecting, learning and engaging, while applying their knowledge and skills to strengthen the nonprofit community as volunteers,” says Jennie Arbogash, Chief Executive Officer. In 2019, SVP Boulder County will welcome three to four new Adjunct Partners. At this time, SVP is especially welcoming applications from marketing and fundraising professionals.
“We believe one of the key characteristics of a strong, healthy network of people is having as diverse a group of Partners as possible, who bring a range of backgrounds, experience levels, perspectives, knowledge, and cultures into the organization,” adds Arbogash. Indeed, SVP’s Adjunct Partners program was created in 2004, with the intent of opening doors to people who will add value to and gain personal value from involvement in SVP, but who cannot otherwise make the required financial membership commitment.”
“Adjunct Partners participate and are involved in SVP just like any other member, which includes engaging as a volunteer, and attending social and educational events,” Shannon Sackmann, Chief Relationship Officer, explains. Specifically, Adjunct Partners meet and work with entrepreneurial individuals, while building skills and receiving professional development. For Adjunct Partners, there are opportunities to lead projects, work on dynamic teams, and create new solutions.
“We find that each person has unique experiences, skills and perspectives to lend toward our work with nonprofits,” concludes Sackmann. “This is a unique opportunity to receive hands-on learning experiences in community issues. By working strategically with local nonprofits, Adjunct Partners make significant contributions to nonprofit participants and SVP itself.”
