Madison Magnet is looking to add several qualified new members to their Board of Directors.  Interested in a leadership position, gaining experience, and contributing to the community? Then keep reading, and submit your own nomination or nominate a friend.

Who is Magnet? Madison Magnet is a membership-based young professionals networking group in Madison, WI, and we focus on three main pillars: Community Involvement, Professional Development, and Social and Networking.  There are committees for each of these pillars that work to create events and membership value to connect, collaborate, and develop the talent in Madison.

About The Board Madison Magnet is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are career professionals working in all types of different industries. The Board consists of up to 15 members who serve three-year terms. To see who is currently on the Board, please read our About page.

The primary responsibility of the Board is to provide leadership to the organization, craft the strategic vision for the organization, execute on projects and partnerships, and continue to grow and develop Magnet.

What are the Requirements? Once elected, Board Members are expected to attend monthly Board meetings, execute on projects, be ambassadors for the organization, and are strongly encouraged to attend a variety of Magnet events. Board Members are also expected to be Madison Magnet Members.

What is the process? If you're interested in joining the Board, or know of a candidate that would be a good fit, please email our President, Corinn Ploessl, at director@madisonmagnet.org with your LinkedIn profile and why you or your friend would be a good candidate for the Board.  We will accept nominations through March 31, 2015. If you're interested in learning more, please reach out or come to one of our events and talk to a current Board member!

What if I want to get involved, but not at the Board level yet? We have several committees that drive several key events. Check out our page on all of these committees, and if you'd like to get involved, please email one of the Project Leads!

We look forward to meeting you, and your contributions to the community!
