Great boards aren’t created overnight. 

The board building process involves careful recruitment, focused orientation, ongoing training and a process for dealing with poorly performing directors. At a time when people are busier and boards are under increasing scrutiny, it can be difficult to find and retain the right board members to lead your organization. 

This workshop will help you plan a board development strategy. Participants will learn about:

  • Board Recruitment:
    • What do you need?
    • How would you recruit?
    • Recruiting for Diversity
  • On-Boarding:
    • Board Orientation
    • New Board Member Engagement
  • Annual Reviews:
    • Board
    • Executive Director
  • Managing Change:
    • Transitioning/changing governance structures
    • Executive Director resignation
    • Board member management 

This workshop will end with an “Ask the Experts” Q & A panel. Ask experience board members everything you want to know about how to build and engage the best board.

Level: Beginner-Intermediate

Target Audience: Board Members, Executive Directors, Financial Staff, Finance Committees, Support Staff and those interested in learning about becoming a volunteer board member
