"I have enjoyed using my creative energy to plan fun events that celebrate our ACT community. We've done champagne and chocolate tastings, a theater night, an Outward Bound course, and much more. Everyone works so hard on their projects, and these sorts of events are a great way to reconnect with other alumni, reflect on our work, and enjoy new experiences."

Management Board

Board Committee

About the Management Board

The ACT Management Board is an operational board, not an advisory board. ACT Management Board members are thinkers and doers. Each Management Board member has a functional area of responsibility and is committed to making ACT the best possible pro bono consulting experience for GSB alumni and our nonprofit clients. This takes considerable time and effort, but we think it’s worth it to sustain this continually improving premier pro bono consulting organization. The Management Board term is two years (with one year review for new members), the maximum service six years. Our year begins in September and ends in August. Meetings are typically held 5:00-7:30 pm the second Wednesday of every month on campus, though in this time of COVID-19 they are held from 4:00-6:30 pm via Zoom.

About the Project Screening Committee

The ACT Project Screening Committee consists of experienced ACT volunteers (typically those who’ve participated in five ACT projects or have gained exposure to the nonprofit sector in other ways) who live in and screen projects in the regions where ACT provides service: Peninsula, South Bay, East Bay, North Bay, SF. Our current need is for screeners in San Francisco &/or the Peninsula. We are a collegial group who work independently under the leadership of the Head of Project Screening, a Management Board member. Once per year we gather in person to discuss best practices and make adjustments to our processes, and twice per year, during each project cycle, we connect via phone. Project Screening member terms are flexible.

Application Process

Complete the ACT Management Board and Board Committee Interest Form to express your interest in one of the above roles and let us know your interests and talents by June 17, 2020. An ACT Nominating Committee member will then contact you about an interview later that week. While we encourage all interested alums to apply, please understand this is a selective process given the number of applicants for these leadership positions.
