Associate Board

The Open Books Associate Board is an energetic group of exciting people who hail from a wide spectrum of occupations and are joined together by a love of literacy. We’re always looking for young professionals from all fields who want to share their time, talents, and connections for the cause! Associate Board Members spread the word about Open Books to their networks, help plan and execute fantastic fundraising events, are willing to make a 2-year commitment, and are comfortable with a $1,000 individual fundraising goal. If these sound like things you can do, we’d love to meet you!

The Open Books Associate Board brings on new members on a quarterly basis. Please attend one of our quarterly info sessions to learn more. Sessions are held at Open Books West Loop, located at 651 W. Lake.

If you have any questions or to RSVP for an session, please contact our Associate Board Recruitment Committee: [email protected]
