Seeking to recruit Board Members? Many non-profit organizations struggle to find appropriate and qualified board members because community members with governance experience, organizational knowledge, and passion for the cause can be hard to find. In this workshop you will find out how to prepare to search for the best board candidates by understanding your organization’s needs and when, who, where and how to recruit board members. We will also discuss board composition as well as individual and group competencies and the mutual benefits of governance volunteering. Orientation, training and evaluation will also be addressed as they help with effectiveness and retention.
