Event Details

Intentional board development is crucial for building a dynamic, engaged, and productive board that makes a substantial contribution to achieving the organization’s mission and serving the community. Unfortunately, recruiting and supporting new board members are often conducted intermittently and without a plan, which can make it difficult to find and actively engage the board members who will help take the organization to the next level. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss ongoing, strategic, board development and provide ideas, tips, and tools so that your organization can more effectively:

  • Assess current needs and create a plan for developing the board.
  • Recruit potential board members with needed skills and experiences.
  • Foster a more diverse and inclusive board.
  • Orient and support new board members so they can more quickly become engaged.

 Take-away resources include:

  • A brief board assessment tool.
  • A board matrix (for analyzing current and needed board member attributes.)
  • Ideas for recruitment that go beyond asking “the usual suspects.”
  • Tips for supporting new board member success.

Who should Attend:  Any nonprofit, regardless of budget can strategically develop their board. This is an ideal session for board members and executive staff to attend together, if possible.
