Posted on 24 Jun 2024

Join Boardmatch Ireland on 16 October as we present our 5th Annual Charity Trustee Speed-Dating, a leading charity board recruitment event, returning for the second year in the fabulous CHQ Dublin.

Boardmatch are back with the fifth annual Dublin event connecting charities and not-for-profits with potential board members. Reflecting on the growth of the event over the years, Boardmatch are delighted to have facilitated the recruitment of over 120 board members (and counting!) for more than 70 charities across Ireland through this event.

Early bird registration for charities is open until Monday, 1st July. Register your charity/not-for-profit organisation today for just €100 (regular ticket price is €150)

What is Charity Trustee Speed-Dating?

This event is the perfect opportunity to meet with and recruit potential board members for your charity or not-for-profit board.

  • The event will be open to candidates on the evening from 5:30pm - 8pm (4pm - 5pm is set up and charity networking hour). Candidates can arrive at any time throughout the event.
  • Each organisation will have an exhibition stand where you can market your organisation, meet with dozens of prospective trustees, share your mission and vison and hopefully make valuable connections that result in new board appointments.
  • This event facilitates the meeting of charities and potential candidates. We will provide contact cards which can be shared between both parties. All follow up, interviews and board appointments will be arranged by the charities themselves.
  • Any new trustee who successfully joins a board through the event will be entitled to attend our Trustee Training course Understanding Governance and the Board’s Role for free - another bonus for charities wanting to recruit "board ready" trustees!

Why should charities and not-for-profit organisations attend?

This is a unique chance to meet in person with dozens of interested individuals who are looking for a charity board role, promote your organisation and hopefully make lasting connections that result in new board appointments.

The ticket fee includes attendance for two representatives from your organisation and we would encourage at least one of these attendees to be a member of the Board.

Hear from a previous charity attendee:

“I highly recommend this event to any charity seeking to recruit voluntary board trustees. It was so well organised and the quality of candidates in attendance was incredible. We were lucky enough to recruit four trustees on the night and are already planning to return next year.” - Valerie Hogan, Interim CEO, Empowerment Plus
