Having a well-rounded board is mission critical. Even the smallest organizations must look beyond the current volunteer corps or the existing board’s circle of contacts to engage and recruit newcomers who can fill specific roles. Today’s challenging times require the services of board members who are skilled in governance, finance, and fundraising, who have a broad array of personal networks, who span the generations, and are racially and ethnically diverse. Join us for some practical, actionable steps for recruiting a 21st century board of directors.
