Board Member Recruiting
How is the board member search working out for you? Have you searched the city but had little to no luck? It's your process, not you or your cause.
Board Recruitment: Getting to the R.O.O.T. of the Matter
An in-person, half-day training cohort.
This half-day course is designed to show you how to recruit and retain engaged board members. Being an active participant on the board of directors is not an option, it is a requirement. When members "check out" it is usually because there is no process or the process is not functioning properly. Experience and training have taught me that you don't just ask a person to serve on your organization's board of directors, you develop a relationship, ensure there is alignment in your needs and their desire to give, and you set them up for success!
Participants will receive, The Board Building Cycle: Nine Steps to Finding, Recruiting, and Engaging Nonprofit Board Members, 2nd ed. by Berit M. Lakey as our foundation.
