Strategic Board Recruitment

One of the most important responsibilities of a board is to ensure that it continuously adds qualified new members and keeps them engaged. Board building should not just happen when it is time to fill a vacancy. It should be an ongoing process with year-round activities.

Learning Objectives
• Articulate the need for a governance committee in supporting and strengthening overall board performance and recruitment
• Cultivate an appreciation for the role that diversity and inclusion play in strategic board recruitment
• Demonstrate a working knowledge of the critical steps in the process of finding, recruiting, and engaging board members
• Understand how to engage potential new board members in a way that sets them up for successful board service and that meets both the organization’s and the board member’s needs and expectations
