About Charity Trustee Speed-Dating

Each participating charity/not-for-profit will have an exhibition table where you can market your organisation, meet with prospective trustees and make valuable connections that result in new board appointments. Boardmatch recommends that each charity has two representatives attend the event and strongly encourages at least one of these attendees to be a representative of the Board.

Earlybird charity tickets are now on sale until 7th April for only €80!
