Board Recruitment: Build a Strong, Diverse Team

Have you ever struggled to fill a position on your board? Does the thought of impending term limits fill you with dread? Are you looking to get a more diverse group around the board table?

CNE’s Cindy Colson will be joined by a panel of Board Academy alum, Marcela Foshay, André Luck, and Sara Whiffen. Each of these participants brings a wealth of experience in nonprofit boards. Through this discussion you’ll lear more about:

  • Finding the right fit for your mission and your needs
  • Developing and maintaining a board representing diverse perspectives and experiences.
  • Considerations for your recruitment strategy
  • Considerations for your on-boarding process
  • Engaging your board in meaningful work

This session will be of help to anyone responsible for board recruitment.
