Recruiting, Engaging and Maintaining a Great Board of Directors

The first webinar in our Governance Series is all about board recruitment and engagement. Developing a well-rounded board of directors is Job #1 when it comes to having a strong organization capable of achieving its mission. Burn out is a common phenomenon, with a few heroic board members carrying the freight for the entire group. The Board Doctor will discuss high-yield strategies for analyzing your board’s needs and building a membership or volunteer pipeline to board service. She will also help you design a program of orientation and ongoing communication that will keep board members engaged and active throughout their tenure. There’s no need to go it alone! Come learn The Board Doctor’s steps to building and maintaining a great board.

Register for this one alone or sign up for the whole series.
