What does the HBCUgrow Advisory Board do?

The main goal of the Advisory Board is to help provide input and direction for our conferences and (potentially) other training events. While our HBCUgrow conferences have been successful, we know including people from the higher-ed side will help us provide a better experience.

Here are our expectations for Board members:

  • Meet virtually for 30-45 minute conference planning calls and a post-conference “warm down” (estimated 8 calls/year)
  • Attend the annual LEAD conference
  • Advise on sessions, content, and direction of the conference
  • Recommend and/or make introductions to potential speakers
  • Secure or connect our team with potential event sponsors
  • Recommend and/or make introductions for a host location (if needed)
  • Support the conference by promoting it to your colleagues/networks and help build attendance
  • Send a substitute to attend the call on your behalf if you are unavailable
  • One year term commitment
