Passion for an organization’s mission is just one of many attractive qualities in a prospective board member.

Appropriate for both emerging and established nonprofit organizations.

  • Board types: working, oversight and advisory boards
  • Board roles, committees, and sub-committees
  • How to undertake the “skills, knowledge, and experience” gap analysis
  • Strategies for recruiting and retention of new board members
  • How to on-board new members, define board norms, and manage expectations
  • The value of term limits
  • How to navigate the partnership between a board president and executive director
