Where's Waldo? Finding & Keeping Great Board Members

Finding and keeping great board members can feel like an impossible task. Often, we make or ask for too big of a commitment too fast from board candidates. Strong board member engagement and retention begins with an intentional recruitment process. Avoid difficult board situations by starting with specific recruitment steps.

Learning Objectives:

After this webinar you will have:
  • Knowledge about a good recruitment timeline and activities
  • Clear expectations to set for the recruitment process and for board candidates
  • Intentional strategies for effectively engaging and retaining great board members

Course Format

This course is the recording of a live webinar and contains the slides and full audio from the original presentation (including Q & A sessions). Only a reasonably current version of FlashPlayer is needed to run this recording (most computers already have this installed).
