Many nonprofit leaders, regardless of the size of the organization, struggle with how to motivate and maintain a strong board. Managing a board can be time-consuming and perplexing, but a healthy, hardworking board can also be rewarding.

Learn how to recruit board members for your nonprofit and how to build a board with the skills your organization needs. We will discuss establishing criteria for board member recruitment so you will know when you have found the right people for your nonprofit.

We’ll look at how you can answer these questions and more so you can find, recruit, and train a board that will help you further your mission.

During this webinar, we will cover:

  • How to identify and strategically fill the talent gaps on your board

I have not started my organization, yet. I plan on having an animal rescue on the 40 acres I own in Coconino County, Arizona. This information will teach me many things as I move toward that goal. Thanks for the opportunity to learn.
