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. Learn how to 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 and integrating them into the board team to make their enthusiastic willingness to take action infectious.
