Explore practical strategies to build an effective board for your nonprofit organization. Identify the strengths of your current board members and the missing pieces – the skills, relationships, and perspectives needed to for your board to provide effective leadership for your organization. Learn how to move beyond the “usual suspects” – individuals who are already overcommitted – to connect with new leaders, including individuals from differing cultural and economic backgrounds. Beyond recruitment, we’ll also explore key strategies to increase board involvement and satisfaction with board service.
