This workshop will address the problem of having an ambiguous, non-existent or unofficial board development & recruitment plan. Many organizational leaders, both staff and volunteer, struggle with board development and recruitment. Often the struggle is with getting the board to not only take ownership of an intentional board development and recruitment process in partnership with the executive leader, but it is also getting the board to have clarity in the role that true board development plays in ensuring the success of the organization. Understanding what a truly intentional board development & recruitment program is and looks like is key in ensuring greater success for nonprofits. This workshop will help to provide a tangible framework that can be implemented by organizations with them giving the appropriate levels and methods of intentionality by organizations and their leaders, both staff and board members alike. We will outline TEN steps and tactics to implementing an intentional and consistent board development and recruitment program. In addition, based on a rubric, participants will also be able to identify and learn their organization’s score of board development effectiveness. This session will be very interactive as we will be conducting both large and small group activities. We will also utilize interactive software that will allow us to have live real-time data sharing and feedback from participants.
