Join us for our workshop on how to effectively recruit and engage your board of directors or advisors to achieve your organization’s goals.

About this Event

Looking for board members or advisors to lead your organization in the right direction? Nonprofits and social good organizations rely on individuals who not only care about their cause but can also contribute to their organization’s mission-focused growth.

You’ll walk away from this workshop knowing how to effectively recruit the right members and advisors for your organization and new methods for facilitating meaningful board meetings that result in strategies that help move your organization towards your goals..

This workshop will also prepare you to use what you’ve learned and apply it at our Board Member Matching event on June 12th, 2019. Your attendance to the Board Development & Governance workshop gives you $20 off the ticket to our Board Members Matching event.

  • Who do you need on your board and how do you recruit them?
  • Facilitation techniques for effective meetings
  • Perfect your ‘elevator pitch’ to recruit board members.
