Event: Berkeley Board Fellows Finale
Date: Thursday, May 1st
Location: Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley
The Berkeley Board Fellows end-of-year reception celebrated the achievements of Berkeley Board Fellows in the 2013-2014 school year. This year 60 organizations and 118 Fellows participated in the program. To date, the program has contributed over 48,000 hours of board service completed by UC Berkeley and Haas students (including alumni) and helped create positive social impact in our community.
Fellows, staff and coaches came together in the Wells Fargo Room to share their experiences. Board Fellows Coaches, Nora Silver and Paul Jansen wrapped up the
year, thanking students for their contributions to the boards and expressed their hope that Students will continue to serve on boards throughout their careers.
Greg Guglielmo, Net Impact VP and Katie Benintende, Net Impact VP of Academics announced the 20 self-nominated awards and called Fellows up to share their experiences. Some
Fellows took this story telling experience one step further, including Board Fellows Brandon Middleton, from Mural Music & Arts Project (MMAP) and Billy Blaustin from Diablo Theatre Company. Brandon preformed a Berkeley Board Fellow inspired rap and Billy theatrically acted out his first board meeting.
The evening ended with The Berkeley Board Fellows award announcements. The Bay Area Hispano Institute for Advancement (BAHIA), nominated by Allison Domicone and Jason Siu, was awarded the Impact Project Award. The award for Outstanding Mentor was presented to three outstanding board members including Eugene Clark-Herrera from Mural Music and Arts Project, Anna Gilmore, Chair of the Emergency USA Board, and Amira Resnick, Board Member and Head of the Strategic Planning Committee of Emergency USA. The final award was presented to Berkeley Repertory Theatre for the most Dynamic Board.
