About 30 & Main
We launched the 30 & Main committee as a new initiative last year to be able to identify prospective new leaders for our organization and for the community as a whole. We asked each of our Board members and donors to nominate one person under the age of 40 who lives or works in Beverly and has demonstrated leadership potential. More than 30 people were invited to join the group and they are now working on committees and attending leadership development sessions.
30 & Main is a way to identify the next generation of leaders for BMS and the community, and provide them with the training and networking opportunities needed to be a contributor.
In 2011, membership was by invitation only. We hope to open up membership in the future, so volunteer with BMS so we can get to know you! Below are the criteria for 30 & Main members:
