What local boards or groups are you an active member of? I am looking to broaden my influence outside of work, but slightly at a loss for opportunities. Where do I start? How does anyone start? Charlotte, if that helps.

Honest, sincere thought : this feels backwards to me. Like, shouldn’t you have a “cause” first, and get involved in boards and groups that further that cause, and then worry about influence later?

Joining things just to become more influential feels skeezy.

I do and will keep in mind to work from bottom up

Volunteer at a non for profit, support your local ethnicity/affinity group, even online communities that share similar interests and may have local meet ups occasionally

Hi- BoardAssist is a “matchmaking” service for non profits and those who want to help. The woman who runs it is AMAZING. I’m in NYC but I’m sure she can help you find things in Charlotte
