Hey Guys,

I'm tasked with designing roles of, recruiting and creating an advisory board for our project here in South Carolina. There's only one little problem, I'm clueless. We decided that the best place to start was to create the roles then work the recruitment and board form pieces later. It has gone no where. I need some help. Does anyone have experience with advisory boards that could help us out? 

Hi Kamelle! Are you working on setting up a VISTA Advisory Committee? My National Service Manager and I are working on that as well. At our last meeting, we opened up the meeting to our current VISTA Supervisors and Board Members of the nonprofits that our VISTAs are working at. We informed them about the "typical life of a VISTA" and asked them if they had any ideas on how to better the VISTA Program. One of our nonprofits offered to host the next Chat and Chew (our once a month VISTA Meetings) and offer a Disability Sensitivity Professional Development training. Another nonprofit is looking into providing free food for our VISTAs. We have our meetings every three months. At our next meeting, we are going to be discussing Life After VISTA and seeing how we can expand our networking opportunities for our VISTAs. I hope this helps! :)
