Recruiting Effective Board Members
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 pm
These are challenging leadership and fund development times for nonprofit organizations. Now more than ever, nonprofit boards need to assess their effectiveness and plan ahead in their board recruitment efforts. In this session, participants will look at their current organizational needs, identify their board skill set gaps, utilize a board assessment tool, and identify challenges in board recruitment and possible solutions moving forward. Dr. Rita Yerkes, Principal, Yerkes Consulting LLC, will lead us in an exploration of “best practices” in board recruitment.
Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of a current board recruitment plan they are using or developing to the workshop for critique and improvement.
- Discuss the role of your organization’s mission in board recruitment
- Assess board skill sets and identify gaps
