Board Fundamentals: Succesion & Recruitment

Proactively recruit, engage and develop the “right” board members

To maintain a committed team of qualified directors is one of the board's biggest challenges. In this half-day workshop, you will learn to move beyond recruiting the average applicant by creating a strategic framework to identify, recruit, engage, and develop the talents of board members. Benefits of developing proactive succession and recruitment plans include:

  • Recruit new board members who share your values and mission
  • Bring in new skills and perspectives by broadening the pool of candidates
  • Ensure continuity of leadership with succession and contingency plans
  • Empower board members to meaningfully contribute with strong onboarding processes


This workshop is ideal for board chairs, board members, and executive directors

Come away from this workshop with the ability to:

  • Identify board member competencies and attributes required for an organization to succeed
  • Recognize the importance of diversity in building an effective board
  • Develop processes to recruit, onboard, and develop board members
