Free Nonprofit Webinar: How to Conduct Board Recruitment in 3 Easy Steps
Join Sabrina Walker Hernandez for this 45-minute nonprofit webinar recording where she will show you how to conduct board recruitment in 3 easy steps.
With the advent of board term limits, one thing is for sure, the nonprofit board generally completely turns over about every four to six years. Keeping this in mind, both board members and executive leadership need to be on the lookout for potential directors who are competent to tackle the sometimes-unpredictable challenges of the future.
Just as unexpected crises, like Covid-19, will confound the new president-elect and other board members, those who occupy the nonprofit boardroom must be well equipped to deal with the inevitable issues that will arise.
If your current recruitment process involves having past directors take off their obligatory year between terms then coming back on to the board. Or you place friends or relatives on your board because it’s convenient. I encourage you to look at your board recruitment process.
Board recruitment should be strategic in nature and when done correctly you will get the right people to say yes.
At the end of this 45-minute webinar recording, you will have the knowledge and tools to implement a board recruitment process for your nonprofit.
