Sponsored Rising to Leadership: Optimize your Service on Boards and Committees with Meg Ellis

There are as many ways to be a leader as there are styles of beer out there. But not every opportunity is going to be the right fit for you. How do you find the “Goldilocks” role where you can make a difference? And what do you do once you’ve found it?

Meg will review key considerations for vetting and considering volunteer leadership opportunities, whether it’s with your favorite nonprofit cause, a state or local Craft Brewers Guild, or something else entirely. If you have a unique perspective to contribute, a goal to accomplish, or just want to connect with others who care about the causes near to your heart, there’s an organization out there that needs your leadership.

Meg Ellis is a nonprofit professional with more than 10 years of work experience in charitable nonprofits and trade associations. She’s been with the Texas Craft Brewers Guild since 2019, where she helped to establish and continues to support the organization’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Subcommittee. Volunteering is near to her heart, and she’s served on the board of numerous organizations as well as served as an appointed member of a City of Austin commission. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin where she also received certificates in Nonprofit Management and Executive Communication. She lives in Austin with her brewer husband, their dog, and a rotating cast of foster animals.
