Nonprofits often take a messianic view toward the arrival of new board members. They hope new arrivals will bring fresh energy, ideas, and networks to break the cycle of 'been there, done that' that can pervade meetings of long-standing boards of directors. How can we assure that our newest board members act as our allies for change, right from the start, raising the bar for board engagement instead of settling in at the lowest common denominator? At this workshop, we will share strategies for firing up new recruits, integrating them into the board team so as to make their enthusiasm willingness to take action infectious.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ways to identify and recruit board members
  • Strategies for firing up new board recruits and integrating them into the board team
  • Laying the foundation for a successful board recruitment process

This workshop will be presented by Gregory Cohen, Associate Director of Cause Effective.
