Strategic Board Recruitment

April 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

One of the most important responsibilities of a board is to ensure that it continuously adds qualified new members and keeps them engaged. Board building should not just happen when it is time to fill a vacancy. It should be an ongoing process with year-round activities.

This workshop guides participants through a process that focuses on the different steps needed to build an effective board.  Understanding these steps can help boards avoid the common ups and downs of building and maintaining a diverse, inclusive and enthusiastic board.   

Learning Objectives

  • Articulate the need for a governance committee in supporting and strengthening overall board performance and recruitment

  • Cultivate an appreciation for the role that diversity and inclusion play in strategic board recruitment

  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of the critical steps in the process of finding, recruiting, and engaging board members

  • Understand how to engage potential new board members in a way that sets them up for successful board service and that meets both the organization’s and the board member’s needs and expectations

Facilitated by Wendy Biro-Pollard, Volunteer Engagement Expert & BoardSource Certified Governance Trainer
