About Being on the Board
We are a working but volunteer Board. This means that we don’t have a large team of staff to execute the work of the organization. Instead, we are the ones working to make sure that the organization meets the members’ needs by planning, coordinating, and executing events (networking, professional development, and volunteer events) as well as marketing the events.
In addition, we plan and manage the budget for the organization with the help of the Lake Superior Community Partnership‘s Financial Controller. We also run two flagship events, the Iron Range Roll and the Connect Conference.
One benefit of being a Connect Marquette board member is after your first year, we cover all membership fees for your remaining time on the board!
