Ocean Institute is pleased to announce recruitment for our
inaugural Junior Board of Directors (JBD). The purpose of the JBD
is to support engage early/mid-career professionals in a
pathway toward Board of Director participation at the Ocean
Institute or other non-profits. In addition to gaining insights
and skills related to board participation, JBD members will apply
their own expertise and skills to support the mission of Ocean
Institute: Using the Ocean as Our Classroom, We Inspire
Children to Learn.
The JBD will meet no more than 6 times a year, usually paired
with an Ocean Institute event to enable JBD members to
participate. The proposed schedule for 2020 is as follows:
Ocean Institute Event
Bites: Unveiling of the Sahm Marine Education Center
Ships Sails n Ales
Volunteer Holiday Party
December (TBD) Ocean
Institute Holiday Party
*NOTE: Meetings will also be run via zoom for those who need
to participate remotely
In addition to becoming an ambassador for the Ocean Institute the
JBD will be tasked to support the design and development of one
event annually that aligns with and ignites participation of
early-mid career professionals.
The Junior Board of Director participants will be expected
to give-or-get $1000 annually. Ideally, $500
is due upon induction and the remaining $500 can be contributed
over the following 6 months. Should the initial $500 be
prohibitive, arrangements can be discussed.
Junior Board members will receive:
Ocean Institute “Swag” (Name tag, hat, t-shirt, etc.)
One ticket to the Jazz Festival Friday event
One ticket to Sails n Ales and two tickets to the Tall Ships
Two tickets to the holiday member party
To learn more, please join us on December 6th at

We welcome you to stay for the party and bring one guest at no
