All About Boards: Build Your Best Board

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:

  • How to find and keep the best board members 
  • Serving a diverse community: the role of the board 
  • Where to find potential board members 
  • How to attract and recruit them to your board 
  • Planning and delivering board orientation and development programs 
  • How to keep board members engaged and build their commitment 
  • What to do about problematic board members and how to build your team 
  • What bylaws, policies and practices you need to support board building 

Level: Beginner-Intermediate

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