In Conversation With BoardAssist


Programs Coordinator Devon Stein spoke with Cynthia Remec of BoardAssist, a member organization of Nonprofit New York. We will continue to highlight the work of our members because we believe when your nonprofit is stronger, all of us are stronger.

Tell me about the organization and what you do.

BoardAssist is one of the leading personalized board matching services available to the tri-state nonprofit community. Since 2001, BoardAssist has brought over $155MM into the nonprofit community through the board matches it has effected. As a nonprofit itself, BoardAssist is uniquely positioned to serve the nonprofit boards it supports. Over 90% of the placements made become leaders on the boards they join within 12 months of joining - and many add much needed diversity to the teams they join.

How many people are on your team?


What population do you serve?

The tri-state nonprofit community.

Where do you see your organization in the next five years or ten years?

Working hard to bring "time, talent and treasure" to the nonprofit community - through the addition of new agents of change to New York-area boards.

How has partnering with Nonprofit New York helped you succeed?

We are huge fans of Nonprofit New York and tell the nonprofits we serve (and the board candidates we place) nonstop: join Nonprofit New York - it's not an option - it's a necessity for any great New York board.

What are you currently working on that you want us to mention to our membership?

We want to be sure that every New York nonprofit understands that we are here to help them grow their board - whether they need help with diversity, new streams of revenue, and/or just terrific new agents of change.
