Boardroom Buddies

Boardroom Buddies are an excellent opportunity to network with other schools, learn from other representatives, and bring some frills to boardroom! We have selectively paired institutions together that we think both can learn from each other! The SEC encourages you to learn how their RHA/NRHH runs, in hopes of fostering connections throughout the year. Find your boardroom buddy HERE.

If you would like to do boardroom buddy gifts with your boardroom buddy, feel free to reach out to them via the SAACURH Facebook page!
