Attendees of Bourbon and Boards will have the opportunity to connect with representatives from nearly 40 local nonprofits looking to engage young professionals on their boards of directors, as well as with other area young professionals while enjoying a bourbon tasting.
“Joining a nonprofit board is a great way to make a significant impact on an organization, while also developing leadership skills,” said NKYP Community Involvement Committee co-chair Ellen Bates.

“From marketing and event planning to technology support and fundraising, being part of a board allows young professionals to leverage their time and skills to strengthen the community at large.”
Bourbon and Boards will take place at the River’s Edge at Newport Landing (101 Riverboat Row, Newport, KY 41071). Registration is free for NKYP Passport Holders, $10 for future NKY Chamber members, and includes access to nonprofit leaders, light bites and three tickets per attendee for half-ounce bourbon tasting pours from the bourbon station. A cash bar will also be available.
Spots are available for nonprofit organizations interested in participating as a vendor. The cost is $30 for a half table for NKY Chamber members and $40 for future NKY Chamber members.
Registration for young professionals and vendors, as well as additional information, is available online at www.nkychamber.com/events.
