Board Development- Recruit and Retain Great Board Members!

Recruitment and retention of great board members are two major issues for many nonprofit organizations. But building a board is more than just filling slots! It’s about having the right blend of skill sets, expertise, community connections, and diverse perspectives. The reality is that without a strong board, the long-term success of the organization’s activities may be endangered. With this in mind, join us as we cover three key governance areas:

  • Recruiting board members who are engaged and highly skilled
  • Training those board members on how to provide effective oversight
  • Retaining board members and keeping them engaged throughout their tenure

We will also work through a board matrix which can be used in assessing your current board make-up or for recruiting new members. In the second half of the morning, we will also cover board retention techniques to keep your board members involved, so they develop into strong, loyal supporters of your organization.
